Excelsior Houston:

A Private School for Learning Barriers

A Private Learning Disability School in Houston, TX

Excelsior Academy is a new, premier private learning disability school for elementary, middle, and high school level students in Houston, Texas.
Excelsior Academy is a new, premier private school for elementary, middle, and high school level students in Houston, Texas with learning barriers. Today, there are teachers in both public and private schools that lack quality instruction and do not have the capabilities to help students who struggle to learn. With public schools facing budget cuts and classes getting larger and larger, Excelsior Academy has provided an alternative learning solution at a time when students need it most. Excelsior caters to all types of learners including those that have learning barriers, learning disabilities and those students who simply struggle in the traditional large class environment. Excelsior Academy Lower Level (grades 1-8) launched on August 25, 2014 and completed its’ first full time school year by fall 2015. We are in the midst of launching our Upper Level school for grades 9-12 and are accepting applications for enrollment.

Our Upper Level High School

We plan on launching our Upper Level school in mid-August and classes will tentatively be held inside the Sugar Land Art Center & Gallery (104 Industrial Blvd, Suite Q, Sugar Land). We encourage you to enroll early in the Spring semester as tuition may be higher for those who enroll later. Our instruction is face to face lecture style and is provided by a special education teacher or Master of Education. We chose to enroll our Upper Level students in online accredited programs as we want to ensure that all their courses are completed with accreditation requirements. Teachers will provide instruction to each student on the content they are learning, and the problems and tests will be completed online. You can rest assured that your student will obtain the verbal instruction necessary for his or her academic subjects. The human component is critical in the learning process for struggling learners. Modifications and accommodations can be provided as necessary for each students. Students enrolling in grade 9-12 will be enrolled in Keystone Academy Online. The online accredited programs allow students to work at his or her own pace, so we can enroll a student at the grade level that we deem as the best fit. We will discuss this with the parents as well.
Electives that are available include Mixed Martial Arts (P.E.), Fine Arts (drawing/sketching), Personal Finance (Economics), Business Computers, and Spanish for Foreign Language. We have a network of private schools that work with us to provide extracurricular activities. Currently, we can offer track and field through one of our school partners. We are working to implement additional sports leagues including basketball, football, and soccer.

 

Elementary School Progress

Our elementary school students have made tremendous progress in their academics. As of January 2015, we have 5 students from grades 3-6 in our lower level class which is located inside Fame Well Montessori (2317 Settler’s Way, Sugar Land). Before attending our school, our students were around 1-2 grade levels behind on reading and math. Through our educational therapy, phonics, and math block activities, we were able to get our students on their respective grade level for reading and math in just 3 months. Our students have improved academically and actually enjoy coming to school each day. They are eager to learn as they have become independent learners, can read on their own, and are motivated to complete their tasks. Our students have improved not just on an academic level but have made strides in their emotional levels as well as they are more positive and willing to learn. We have excellent testimonials and feedback from our Excelsior parents and can provide references upon request.
Feel free to view the positive feedback we have received from parents on the Great Schools website

Testimonials


“My child has learning difficulties and was attending a public school. There were so many kids that were a bad influence on my child and he was not getting the individual attention he needed. We pulled him out of public school and enrolled him at Excelsior. He is happy to be learning in a small class environment where the teachers really care.”
– Shelly B., Richmond, T

“The teachers genuinely care about each student’s needs and actually sit 1 on 1 with him when he has trouble”
– Madeline B., Richmond, TX
