Student Life...

... Because school is so much more than just academics

1/11

"Have you ever wanted to go to a school where everyone is friendly and kind?  Mirus Academy is your answer. In public school, both kids and parents are stressed, but here at Mirus Academy my parents and I don't feel stressed at all.  I feel much more relaxed at not nervous at all.  I'm so glad I go to Mirus!

BEYOND ACADEMICS

Students attend school to learn so much more than just how to factor polynomials or balance chemical formulas.  They attend school to learn the skills necessary to someday be happy and productive adults.  Whether they are performing in the school play, discussing current events, or taking on a leadership role in the Student Council, Mirus students are always growing in ways that move beyond basic school academics.

 

FREQUENT FIELD TRIPS

Classroom learning is important, but it is just as important to leave the classroom and venture out into the real world.  Mirus students participate in a field trip each month: From watching Houston Ballet performances to touring downtown skyscrapers; from milking a cow at a dairy farm to eating dim sum in China Town; from cruising through the ship channel to visiting Houston's many museums.  Field trips are able to teach students far more than a textbook ever could.  

INTERNATIONAL TOURS

The world is our classroom!  Students enrolling in the "Global Studies" course step away from the textbooks and into the real world as they travel with classmates and teachers to global destinations.  The trips are not casual vacations-- they are carefully crafted tours packed with educational adventures and life-long memories.  High school and college credit is available, and parents are welcome to come too!  Past tours have included Greece, Italy, France, Caribbean Islands, England, Iceland, and Japan.
