Welcome to Willow Bend Academy, and thank you for viewing our programs and discovering why we major in success.

20 years ago, we envisioned a “second chance” school for students who could not succeed in traditional schools, but we were wrong!

Students who need special academic help receive the help they need.  Students of all abilities need us as well. Willow Bend Academy is small, but has produced outstanding students including a National Merit Scholar.

Niche rated Willow Bend Academy among the top 100 Christian High Schools and most diverse student populations in Texas. Niche ranks K-12 schools, colleges and universities on several criteria. Millions of people access their website when seeking quality schools for their children.

Campus Profile

On Campus and Home StudyPrograms.

Because students have various situations, we offer both daily on campus classes as well as a supervised home study program.  Our class valedictorians have come from both environments. 

The 2017-2018 class will be number twenty. Graduates have become professionals in business, Christian ministry, military service, and the workforce.  Above all, they have become responsible citizens who contribute to society.

World-wide reputation.

Our reputation for quality is world-wide. This year, we have students from Cambodia, China, Mongolia, Nigeria, Romania, South Korea, United Kingdom, and Vietnam. Students with English  receive personalized English help in core academic as well as a more traditional ELL class.

Both domestic and international students have gained entrance to major universities in the United States as well as to universities in Canada, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and United Kingdom.

Non-discrimination policy

Willow Bend Academy welcomes students without regard to race, ethnicity, and religion in its admissions policies.  While we are not required to adhere to government policies regarding race and  religion, we choose to do so because it is the “right thing to do”. As Jesus told his disciples to “go to all nations”, we welcome students from all nations as well.

Christian Values

Our faculty and staff members are all professing Christians and demonstrate their faith by their lifestyle and conversation. There is no requirement that students be or become Christian.  All students are treated with respect whether they are domestic or international students and are assisted in facing both academic and lifetime challenges.

Our philosophy is that each student is unique and will thrive with a tailor made plan of studies in our one-to-one teacher/student model.
