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). 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 9th to 12th
graders from the Tomball area and surrounding vicinities.
We serve 85-90 students per semester and classes are
kept small. 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. Students who have a job or hold regular
volunteer positions are given elective credit. To
be eligible for the full credit, students are required
to work 15-20 hours per week.
ComQuest Academy strives to provide a secure and professional
learning environment for its students. School is in
session from 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Students are expected to be on campus
on or before classes start. Tutorials are held for students
who need help with the TAKS and/or core classes from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
A dress code is strictly maintained - ComQuest logo
