The first of its kind in Texas, this unique charter school model was approved by the Texas Education Agency in 2017. Our teachers and administrators are active members in our neighborhoods and are focused on the intellectual and emotional growth of your student.

We believe all students are born with purpose and destined for success. At Yellowstone College Prep we create a safe learning environment with high academic standards.

Growing to serve

Yellowstone College Prep shares a single campus with Yellowstone Academy in the heart of Houston’s historic Third Ward where we inspire, empower and invest in students to achieve their highest potential and fulfill their intended purpose.

We are dedicated to building leaders from 5th to 10th grade in the 2021-22 school year. Yellowstone College Prep is growing to serve 11th-12th grade students by adding a grade level each year .
