when we, as a non-profit organization, were granted charters to open 15 dropout recovery and prevention schools. In 1999, our first school year, 50 staff members spread out across the state of Texas welcomed over 700 students, 65 of which graduated that year. At that time, our “home office” was literally in someone’s home with only a handful of employees.
Our story began in 1998
Over the years,
in addition to Premier, our dropout recovery and prevention schools, we have developed a line of classical academies, STEM, and early college high schools, as well as several virtual school options, all with the intention of offering students and parents the choices that help them fulfill their dreams.
Today, after twenty years in operation,
we serve more than 20,000 students on more than 80 campuses across Texas and Arkansas through 5 distinct educational models. Our 2,300 team members remain dedicated to a highly focused moral and civics education mission to provide hope for all children.
