About Westlake Academy
Westlake Academy is an IB World School whose mission is to provide students with an internationally minded education of the highest quality so they are well-balanced and respectful life-long learners.
Founded in 2003, Westlake Academy is an open-enrollment college preparatory charter school located in Westlake, Texas. Primarily funded by the Texas Education Agency, there is no tuition associated with attending the school.
We are one of the very few schools in the United States offering the internationally-recognized college preparatory continuum of all three International Baccalaureate programs within a single campus.
At Westlake Academy, we take great pride in the achievements of our student-athletes. It is our belief that athletics complement academics by providing additional valuable learning experiences that prepare our students for success in society.
Participation in interscholastic sports offers an opportunity for students to enjoy the pursuit of excellence and test themselves against their own achievements as well as those of their peers. Through competition, students learn that rules, when consistently applied, create order and discipline.
The flow of student energy into a more intensified arena enriches the classroom experience and instills moral, spiritual, and ethical patterns of conduct that are carried throughout life.
The Westlake Academy Athletics site provides information for student-athletes, their families, and their supporters, including registration for participation. We hope you find this site helpful and return to it throughout the athletic season.
Our student-athletes always appreciate having our parents, community members, student body and staff cheer them on. We encourage you to be involved in the Westlake athletic experience as your support is important to the success of our student-athletes.
About the Primary Years Programme
The Primary Years Programme (PYP), a curriculum framework for children in kindergarten through grade 5 at Westlake Academy, focuses on inquiry-based learning. By emphasizing knowledge, skills, critical thinking, and the fostering and development of universal human values, the PYP is a powerful means of going beyond subject domains, asking students to use their knowledge and skills to solve real-life problems.
In doing so, students become responsible for their own learning and must work collaboratively with peers and build on each member’s strengths.
