"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"

At Arrow Academy, our mission is to provide an environment where your child will grow in both academic and spiritual knowledge. We believe children thrive when their instruction is tailored to their individual style of learning. Our students will leave our program knowing they were fearfully and wonderfully made by a Father in heaven who loves them.
Arrow Academy provides an enriched learning environment for the children through themes, Bible stories, numbers, shapes, letters, songs, art, and science. Each teacher plans the specific activities for the class according to the developmental level of the children and according to the Specific Knowledge and Skills Criteria, TEKS, set forth by the Texas Education Agency. Children 2 years and older will attend Chapel, Art, and Music classes focusing on Bible stories, crafts, and age-appropriate music. Classroom curriculum also includes:
- Bible and Theme Stories
- Nursery Rhymes
- Art, Music, Math, Science• Centers
- Circle Time
- Quiet Time (2 and 3 year olds)
- Quiet Reading Time (4 and 5 year olds)
- Fine Motor Skills (puzzles, play-dough, cutting, etc.)
- Large Motor Skills (creative play, recess)
Parents are asked to send a nutritious lunch and one dry snack each day their child will be at school. Teachers will not be able to heat or cool a child’s lunch, so we ask that you include an ice pack or a thermos depending on which would be more appropriate.
