ABOUT US

Opened in 1999, ComQuest Academy was founded on the belief that all children can learn and that education is paramount to a strong society. ComQuest Academy endeavors to offer Academic and Career & Technology education opportunities to all populations.

ComQuest Academy follows the mandatory credit requirements determined by the State of Texas. The curriculum, Star Spangled Skills, was developed by The Charter Resource Center in San Antonio and is aligned with the state-developed TEKS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills). In addition, the curriculum is supplemented with appropriate material to address state required preparation for state assessment.  For this reason, students transferring from the traditional school districts are able to transition easily in most cases. ComQuest Academy believes in a "learning by doing" philosophy, and tries to model classes after this philosophy.

ComQuest Academy accepts 7th to 12th graders from the Tomball area and surrounding vicinities. Classes are kept small and in most cases, there are no more than 20 students per class.

ComQuest Academy requires that high school students participate in the program for workforce development. It is the policy of ComQuest Academy Charter not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, handicap, or age in its vocational programs, services or activities as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendements of 1972; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. ComQuest will take steps to assure that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in all educational and vocational programs. Students who have a job or hold regular volunteer positions earn elective credit. To be eligible for the full credit, students are required to work 15-20 hours per week.
