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.
Learning disabilities we serve include: ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, & more

Excelsior is a unique private school for learning disabilities. Our program provides students with real life application and tools they can take with them whether on the job or in daily activities. In order to best provide individualized instruction at our school for learning disabilities, we offer small classes of up to 8 students, while public and charter schools may have 25-30 students per class.
Excelsior Academy is selective in it’s admissions process just like other learning disability schools in Houston. While charter schools specialize in a particular subject such as math or science, Excelsior Academy specializes in applicable learning and teaching students with learning disabilities. Our education specialists have over 30 years of combined teaching experience. Excelsior Academy has helped over 200 students achieve academic success.
The mission of Excelsior Academy is to help students with learning barriers excel and achieve success by fostering a meaningful educational institution in which students are taught how to learn as opposed to what to learn; providing individualized instruction, educational therapy and practical application to learning

“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”
