Overview

Self-reported by organization

Yellowstone Academy exists to promote human flourishing among Houston’s neediest families.  The school exclusively serves children from very low-income families with a program designed to provide them the educational, spiritual, social and practical resources they need to succeed in life. Yellowstone Academy is a faith based, comprehensive approach to addressing the multi-dimensional challenges of poverty in the lives of children from the platform of a high quality private pre-school through eighth grade educational institution.  Through education and intensive intervention, these children can break the cycle of intergenerational poverty and grow up to become responsible, productive adults.
