Rigorous Academics in a Nurturing Environment
"We LOVE Mirus Academy! Our son feels challenged, yet very supported at the same time. He is able to be with students his own age while still accelerating in core academic subjects."
-- Mirus Parent
Mirus classes range in size from 4 - 12, with an average class size of 8. With such small classes, it's easy to provide students with the individual attention they need. Plus, it's easy for classes to be discussion-based, with lots of student-teacher dialogue and time for hands-on activities.
COLLEGE PREPARATORY CURRICULUM
Mirus Academy offers a rigorous yet accessible college-prep curriculum in alignment with Texas graduation requirements. Honors, Advanced Placement (AP), and Dual Credit options are available to high achieving students, and most juniors and seniors are enrolled in at least one college-level course. Mirus is a "non-ranking" school, so the academic environment is supportive and less stressful than other high schools.
ABILITY PLACEMENT & G/T OPTIONS
Mirus allows high achieving students to enroll in classes above their grade level, so parents can be assured their children are being academically challenged. A large percentage of Mirus's students are identified as academically "gifted & talented", and many choose to take college courses during high school or even graduate early.
Mirus Academy graduates have an average ACT score of 25-26, substantially higher than the national average of 21. Administrators work closely with seniors and their parents to ensure a smooth and successful college admissions experience. For the classes of 2015 - 2017, 100% of university-bound seniors received a college scholarship, with an average offer of $84,000 (range of $45K - $140K).
