A New Paradigm

Arrow Academy believes the purpose of education is to give all students the opportunity to acquire the skills to become contributing, responsible citizens within our society.

Becoming productive adults is the basis of Arrow Academy's blended model for learning. To accomplish this, we recruit and train quality teachers, provide a safe classroom environment and a low student to teacher ratio. We supplement the live teaching with a web-based curriculum that allows each student, regardless of past experience, to accelerate in their learning.

Arrow Academy teachers and faculty work with each student to become life long learners.

There are two components to successful learning. First, create an environment with teachers that truly care about each student and are dedicated to their success in and out of the classroom. Second, provide proven curriculum that meets the individual needs of each student. This is accomplished through a blended model of quality live teaching and online curriculum.

About Arrow Academy

Arrow Academy opened four Texas locations in August 2011. With 70 teachers serving 900 students, we are dedicated to preparing children in underserved communities to be successful in college and life.

Arrow Academy is a revolutionary alternative to the current, traditional learning model.

We embrace the need for transformation in the educational process. We combine quality teachers with innovative technology to provide each student the most proven leadership development and learning system in the country.

Students that struggle in a traditional school thrive in Arrow's personalized learning environment. Struggling to learn is a normal part of a rigorous education, but embarrassment should never be an issue for someone trying to learn.

Effort trumps talent every time.

Today in America

A student drops out of school every 26 seconds. In Texas the rate is every 4 minutes. The results in Texas have been consistent for the past 23 years.

One-third of middle school and high school students will not graduate.

A typical classroom requires a teacher to address 7-12 different reading levels for student instruction in a class of 22-28 children to meet all students' needs

78% of Juvenile crime is commited by high school drop outs.

An elementary child who has two consecutive years of poor teaching loses almost all hope of catching up to proficiency levels in secondary school.

In the Houston metropolitan area, 26,929 students dropped out of school in 2008.

"The solution to this dilemma of having schools and teachers respond to student variation in achievement has never been implemented because it would require transformative changes at every level of education."

Distinguished Professor Emeritus,
