Griffin Spotlight
Students preparing for the future with Coach Tiffany Mills
When you first meet her, Coach Mills seems like she’s all business. She has a lot to do and a short amount of time in which to do it. She has students to teach, practices to organize, uniforms to order, and teams to coach. It is a lot, but she loves it and all the challenges that accompany the title of “Coach”. And, she’s doing it all at a new school, a new campus, with new students, and a growing sports program. She is establishing a foundation for Aristoi Cypress students for today and for the future. That’s her mantra - the future.

It is important to Coach that her students understand that “now” is important as it establishes and creates the “future”. 

Living in Virtue, Alumni Aubrey Lister

Aristoi’s virtues include honesty, wisdom, justice, courage, temperance, respect, humility, charity, and magnanimity. Teachers provide examples for students throughout their time at Aristoi, including Communitas. Students read articles and books with characters that embody the virtues. 

Virtuous examples abound in Aristoi’s growing alumni community, too, especially, when you meet alumni like Aubrey Lister, Class of 2022. The Aristoi virtues come to mind when you speak with her and hear her story. 

The Clarks go to Washington, submitted by Wendy Clark
During National Charter Schools Week in mid-May, it was my honor to join four other Griffin families from the Elementary Katy, Upper School, and Aristoi Cypress campuses in Washington, D.C. for the #BackOff Our Charter Schools rally.
Our family has been a part of Aristoi for over 10 years. My eldest, Kylie, began as a kindergarten student in Mrs. Beane’s class and is now a rising sophomore at the Aristoi Upper School - Katy campus. In the intervening years, four additional Clark children have become Griffins as well – we have rising 1st, 5th, 6th, and 8th grade scholars this year.

Donor Spotlight
"Most schools will prepare our children for a job. We chose Aristoi because it prepares our children for life. We love that classical education teaches our children how to think, how to pursue truth, and how to be grateful for beauty when they see it. Aristoi is a blessing to our family!"
