Guiding the next chapter of a lasting legacy.

Allen Academy
Bryan, Texas

Project Summary

Allen Academy has a rich history in Texas, as the oldest accredited, non-religious preparatory school in the state. While honoring this heritage, they are intentional in the pursuit of modern practices.

They represent “the best of what college schools traditionally provide while also preparing students for the changing world ahead.”

Part of this future vision included a new school head, and thats where NextEd got involved.

From 1886 to today

Allen Academy was formed by the Allen family over a century ago. Through the years, it has maintained its stellar reputation.

Brushing up on history

With any school of extended history, it’s important for NextEd to learn where they’ve been to honor the past and steer properly.

Making room for new thinking

The board welcomed our input, especially in matters related to onboarding for the new head and setting him up for success.

Opportunity profile

NextEd helped Allen Academy develop a full opportunity profile including recent accreditation, the supporting team, diverse teaching methods, and the focus on a college preparatory level.
