Archway Academy was established in 2003 by concerned parents and adolescent addiction recovery experts who recognized the need for a school that was dedicated to supporting teens in recovery from drug and alcohol abuse or dependency.  Archway is an official Recovery High School, meeting all membership criteria for the national Association of Recovery Schools (ARS).  Located on the campus of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, Archway is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  We aim to create a community of diversity, compassion and mutual respect.  Archway is not affiliated with any religious organization but is spiritual in nature, following the 12-step recovery model.

Archway enjoys an important funding and academic partnership with Southwest Schools, which provides our teaching staff and curriculum.  Southwest Schools is a State Charter School governed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and is proud to be considered a school of excellence for diverse learners.  Archway has a rolling admissions policy which allows students to enter at any time during the semester, and Southwest Schools’ flexible curriculum enables students to catch up on coursework they may have missed prior to admission.
