First Melissa is proud to announce the launch of Arrow Academy, a preschool for ages 18mo-5yr. 
Our inaugural year runs August 2021-May 2022 Monday-Friday, 9 am-2 pm.

"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!"

Psalm 127:3-5

Mission Statement

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. On Monday and Thursdays, children 18 months and older will attend Chapel focusing on Bible stories 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.


We follow the Melissa ISD calendar, which means their days off are our days off. Hours of care are Monday through Friday, 9am-2pm.
