Calvary Episcopal Preparatory
1201 Austin
Richmond, TX 77469
(281) 342-3161

While outstanding academics are a trademark for Calvary’s reputation of excellence, its pride as Fort Bend County’s premiere Christian school is how students and faculty treat each other and grow in their understanding of God’s expectations for them. The Calvary 3 R’s: Reverence for God, Respect for others, and Responsibility for self are the cornerstone for every aspect of the child’s educational journey. In addition to a rigorous and accelerated academic environment, the Calvary experience includes service learning, leadership opportunities, and enrichment programs for student creativity and expression. These programs include a successful athletic department, Student Council, National Honor Society, and visual and performing arts that encompass a Thespian Troupe, a National Arts Honor Society, and competitive band. Calvary consistently wins district competition against other private schools in Private School Interscholastic Association (PSIA) for lower and middle school. Upper school students compete in Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS), sending many students to state each year. Small classrooms and individualized attention assure that students enjoy a safe and nurturing environment. Christian Character classes, Bible instruction and three chapel services weekly foster an emotionally safe environment. Calvary is unique in that students learn to “live together” regardless of age, as the school enters PK-4 year olds and graduates students in grade 12. Students freely interact, with the older students mentoring the younger in a diverse student body that is accepting of all faiths and nationalities. (Calvary is an international school and issues the F-1 visa.)

The lower and middle grades accelerate the curriculum so that students are instructed a grade above the national average. This results in median achievement test scores that range from 2 to 4 grades above. High school students are encouraged to take Advanced Placement courses, Dual Credit courses and graduate with a distinguished diploma and an average of $120,000 in offered scholarships.

Gateway America Preparatory School
222 FM Rd. 359 FM 359
Richmond, TX 77406
(281) 513-5566

Gateway America is a non-traditional school, appealing to parents who are seeking a proven curriculum for their child’s education. We are also a school, which develops the skills the student will need to distinguish him/herself in the competitive professional world. Gateway America uses both an accredited curriculum and a non-accredited curriculum for instruction. The Gateway curriculum is focused upon development of the whole child. This involves a highly individualized approach, which strives to meet the needs of each child at the individual child’s academic, social and behavioral level.

Gateway America is proud of its community. We encourage parents and families to be involved in their child’s education as much as possible. As we teach personal responsibility, communication, and relationship development, it is highly valuable to the student if these skills are reinforced, practiced, and modeled at home. It is our goal for students to build strong relationships with their parents, while also gaining the ability to speak for themselves on any occasion. We work to create a safe and welcoming environment where all students feel comfortable and supported in their learning.

Social development is as important to our students as academic success. Gateway America encourages students to develop strong relationships with their families, teachers, and other students. Students have many opportunities to interact with their classmates, ranging from peer mentoring and group work, to breaks during the school day for socialization, conversation, and games. Being able to interact effectively with others is a crucial element of building soft skills. These activities help students build their communication and interpersonal skills, and we believe this will benefit them greatly in their life after high school.

We offer small classroom environments and encourage peer mentoring and group work to help our students develop crucial soft skills. Group work is an excellent opportunity for students to practice their communication, leadership, and teamwork skills. Our outstanding academic program is customizable and allows for a variety of different learning styles. Students set and achieve their own academic goals, and work directly with teachers to design their own lessons. In addition, our students have the freedom to work at their own pace.

We hope to see you soon!

Named Sugar Land’s Best Pre-School in 2017, Montessori Kids Universe brings smiles to the faces of children and parents alike. Parents love the school for its personal attention to each child and the miracles teachers seem to work with the children, both academically and behaviorally. Children love the school because every day they are greeted warmly by their teacher, welcomed into a beautiful classroom, and treated with respect and kindness, all while discovering the joy of learning.

Montessori Kids Universe follows the authentic Montessori Method in all areas, from the materials used to teach lessons to the techniques used to teach children individual responsibility and cooperation with others. Soft voices, a calm atmosphere, neat and orderly rooms, and engaging, high-level work materials are the foundation of every pre-school day.

Shady Oak Primary School

600 Main St.
Richmond, TX 77469
(281) 344-1291

At Shady Oak Primary School, we provide a purposeful education. Our goal is to prepare your child to be a successful adult. Every child is a unique individual and learns in their own way. We use a combination of methodologies to provide a high quality, skills-based education that includes child-centered play and participatory learning. Our four C’s – Culture, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Communication are interwoven into each class.

We do not ‘teach to the test,’ nor do we require students to take the STARR Test. Work is meaningful and real-world based. Our rigorous academics are designed to be engaging, sticky and fun! For example, once a week our lower elementary students ‘play store.’ No worksheets with pictures of coins here! Students purchase items with real coins and learn to make correct change.

Shady Oak students are empowered to make choices that serve them. Children spend a minimum of an hour and a half outdoors daily and are encouraged to move around in the classroom. Not everybody does their best work at a desk! Growth mindset and positive self-talk are taught and celebrated. We are in front of behavioral issues before they become a problem and when conflicts arise, we resolve them on the spot.

Learning how to collaborate with others is something everyone needs to know; we actively teach this behavior.

Through discovery-based critical thinking, students gain the ability to tap into their existing knowledge to figure out solutions to a wide range of problems.

Communication is the bridge between collaboration and critical thinking, and one way we expose our students to this skill is through weekly speech class.

If this sounds like the right fit for your student, please call (281) 344-1291 to schedule a tour!
