We have put together a guide to help you learn more about Premier High Schools campuses in San Antonio and take steps to get enrolled.

About Premier High Schools

Premier High Schools was founded in 1999 with 15 campuses in Texas. They are dedicated to providing hope for students through educational options that promote a free society and cultivate moral and academic excellence.

The approach at Premier High School is not the same as a traditional education; instead, they have built a system around the needs of their students. They look at each student as an individual, assess their academic strengths and weaknesses, and provide them with the tools to move forward. 

The curriculum is self-directed, allowing students to move at their own pace, but with structure. The teachers at Premier High Schools are passionate about helping students achieve their goals on their own terms.

Students at Premier High School can participate in credit recovery, a strategy that encourages students to retake a course that they failed in the past, and if the student successfully completes the course requirements, they can earn the credit they need for high school graduation. Students have the opportunity to accelerate their education.

Premier High School prepares students for a successful life beyond high school. Their coursework prepares them to enter the military or gain college acceptance. Students can participate in Career and Technical Education (CTE) and earn career and technical certifications.
