The Academy at Houston Baptist University
Transformative Classes for Junior High and High Schoolers
The Academy at Houston Baptist University exists to extend the challenge and rewards of university style classes to Houston area Junior High and High School students, both home schooled and in local high schools, providing them with the opportunity to earn transferable college credit along the way. Classes at The Academy meet twice a week at Houston Baptist University or a satellite campus near you.
At The Academy, we don’t believe in busy work, lecturing, or that tests are the most important part of education. Our classes, from Great Books to algebra, are classical, Socratic, and centered on engaging our students in the great conversation as it has existed throughout history, and as it continues today.
