Dear Families and Friends of Aristoi,
Aristoi Classical Academy is a tuition-free charter school in the heart of Old Katy. "Aristoi" is an ancient Greek word meaning the best, noble character, and a right nature. The name connotes our commitment to provide our students the best in academics while encouraging them to become young men and women of virtuous character. We provide the individual attention and support of a private school at no cost.
Aristoi follows the classical model of education which focuses on the innate desire of children to know more. Our dedicated faculty promotes the development of the whole child by encouraging students to pursue knowledge for its own sake. Using the time-honored texts of classical literature, we immerse students in a rich intellectual curriculum. Our focus on the art of learning gives us the freedom to weave together subjects as diverse as history, science, mathematics, Latin, and fine arts. In addition, our high standards impel all students to develop the skills of critical thinking and effective verbal and written communication. Because we believe that knowledge cannot be divorced from character, our school pairs academic instruction with an emphasis on timeless values such as respect, temperance, service, and patriotism.
Almost all of our income comes from the state based on average daily attendance (also a funding source for traditional public schools). Charter schools have the financial disadvantage of being paid less per student than traditional school districts. The Texas Education Agency Actual Financial Data report from 2013-2014 shows that Katy Independent School District received $10,443 per student while Aristoi received $8,021 per student in that year. Additionally, traditional independent school districts receive funds for facilities, whereas charter schools have to raise or borrow the funds for facilities.
Some of Aristoi's immediate needs include plumbing in the new Junior High modulars, a canopy for the playground structure, new air conditioning units in campus buildings, library and classroom books, and a bell system for Junior High class changes. For a complete list of the School's needs/wish list, see the Wish List pdf below.
With a spirit of gratitude for our wonderful students and families, we ask you to join Aristoi Classical Academy in preparing students for the challenges of citizenship in the new millennium. Any donations we receive will enhance our ability to provide an excellent classical education now and for generations to come.
Please feel free to share this letter with any of your family or friends who have an interest in helping our School. We are a non-profit organization and, as such, all donations to Aristoi Classical Academy are tax deductible.
Thank you for your dedication to our School and to the education of your children.
