Since 1982, Katy’s oldest private school, Faith West Academy, has continued to uphold core values of
• Reverence for God
• Respect for ourselves, others, and authority
• Responsibility for one’s action.
Located on 42 acres east of downtown Katy, FWA provides individualized learning to achieve academic excellence in a safe, Christian environment for preschool (starting at age 2) through 12th grade.
Faith West is committed to Excellence Without Compromise as they educate 21st century learners, preparing them academically for college and careers that may not exist yet, as well as preparing them spiritually for the real-world challenges they will face. Teachers and staff work to accomplish these goals through individualized instruction that meets the needs of each learner and allows students to grow in their God-given abilities. “We take pride in the academic achievements of our students, the skills of our teachers, and the involvement of our parents to help students achieve God’s purpose for their lives” says Principal Mary Strickland.
Preschool through 12th grade boast a strong academic curriculum. A Gifted and Talented program is available for first through fifth grades, and grades 6-12 offer Pre-AP and Advanced Placement courses in every subject area, including Spanish and studio art. The school operates on the principles of the Christian faith and incorporates these principles in all curriculum and school operations. The Academy is accredited by the International Christian Accrediting Association and by AdvanceED, organizations both approved and recognized by the state of Texas.
From academics to athletics, missions to music, chapel to clubs, students are encouraged to express their uniqueness. Faith West boasts a competitive athletic program for junior high and high school students and a award-winning theater, band, and FFA programs. Our high school students compete through Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS).

We are offering a Christian, high level, trilingual education to children 18 months to 8 years old (2nd grade/CE1). We will be opening an additional grade level each year. We are following the curriculum set forth by the French Ministry of Education, which encourages analytic and critical thinking; this curriculum is then adapted in Spanish and English.
