Who We Are

Compass Rose Academy

Compass Rose Academy opened in August 2017 with a single mission: to prepare every student for college and the world beyond. Our academic program challenges students to fulfill their potential by pushing them harder than other schools are willing to push them. In middle school, that means every student takes a pre-AP curriculum that closes gaps and accelerates students ahead. In high school, students take at least six AP classes to ensure they are prepared for the most rigorous college courses. While academic achievement is our “True North”, we also support our students as they learn the character traits necessary to be good citizens in the classroom and in their community.

The Compass Rose flagship campus currently serves students in grades 6-8 and will grow by one grade level each year until it is a full 6-12 school. The second campus will open in 2020, with a third campus planned for 2021.

Every child, no matter their race, socio-economic status, zip code, or home language, can be on a path to college and a lifetime of success

Students thrive in a personalized, structured, and supportive environment.

Teaching technology literacy, leadership skills, cultural competence, and self-advocacy are critical components to building our country’s future leaders.

We were authorized by the Texas Education Agency in the spring of 2016.

Our approach to building a great school is based on three foundational beliefs:

  1. Every child, no matter their race, socio-economic status, zip code, or home language, can be on a path to college and a lifetime of success;
  2. Students thrive in a personalized, structured, and supportive environment; and
  3. Teaching technology literacy, leadership skills, cultural competence, and self-advocacy are critical components to building our country’s future leaders.

What does our name mean?

A compass rose (Rosa de Los Vientos) is the figure on a map or compass used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions: North, East, South, and West—and their intermediate points.

Each student is on a unique path from the moment they begin school until they graduate college. Our goal is to help our students blaze their own trails as they build their dreams. Like a compass for a traveler, Compass Rose Academy will point students towards college and successful careers, and we will support them as they complete their journey.
