WE OPENED IN 2020!
As we all look back at 2020, we can all agree that it has been quite a year. Houston Classical Charter School signed a lease agreement to open the school located at 6304 Addicks Clodine in Alief, Texas, just one week before the entire country shut down. On August 24, Houston Classical Charter School opened amidst a global pandemic.
Southwest Houston but more specifically, Alief, is a community with a high percentage of both economically disadvantaged (85%) and English Language Learners (44%). This makes this community unique in its needs. Sadly, about 30% of students in Alief ISD have been able to develop the academic skills needed to meet or master the Texas reading and mathematics STAAR assessment. Houston Classical’s goal is to ensure that academic achievement levels are raised for all students in Alief.
Now, four months into the 2020-21 school year, Houston Classical proudly offers 60 incredible Kindergarten and First Graders a high-quality education. Houston Classical Charter School teaches through a classical model, with high academic expectations, character development, and a structured environment. At Houston Classical, we believe that education is the great equalizer for scholars and families.
Our school is designed to maximize our scholars’ potential and enrich their lives through a rigorous and warm environment. With that being said, with each decision we make, we lay the foundation, brick by brick, of an excellent school that will ultimately develop future productive and active members of their communities. In laying a strong foundation, especially in the beginning, we know we need a strong supportive community to accomplish our goal.
Thus, we are asking for your participation and support to continue our mission.
We ask that you continue to support a school where scholars are expected to read at or above grade level, where education is taken seriously, and where their curiosity is explored through challenging mathematics and science problems.
Here are some ways your contribution can support Houston Classical:
$25 will purchase math manipulative for one classroom

$125 will purchase science materials for one topic
$200 will purchase art supplies for 150 scholars

A great education is the best investment for the future. Please help us in securing that our scholar’s outcomes are not determined by where they live but by their efforts and determination.
