Welcome from our Founder and Executive Director

Welcome to Ethos Classical Charter School!

As the Founder and Executive Director of Ethos, it is my joy to welcome you to our small and mighty school. There are so many things that make Ethos magical, but without a doubt, our community is what makes us extraordinary.

At Ethos Classical, education is about ensuring excellence in academics while nurturing the whole child. Ethos was founded to provide a choice for families seeking a high quality, research-based environment with a focus on literacy and the arts. Through a two-teacher per classroom model, Ethos equips scholars with a firm foundation for academic success throughout their life. Daily arts instruction, including studio arts, music, dance, and drama underpins achievement across all content areas and equips scholars with the discipline, creativity, and independence for a full and happy life.

We invite you to come visit our beautiful campus nestled in Sylvan Hills. Ours is a vibrant community of scholars who are learning, growing, and achieving through our challenging and supportive culture.

With urgency and eagerness,
