Aristoi's Birthday
Aristoi Classical Academy continues to celebrate 25 years as a successful, tuition-free, public charter school. Celebrate with us by watching the video below!
Griffin Spotlights
Young Audiences Arts for Learning Houston and Aristoi PTO partner together to bring a unique performance to Aristoi students
Aristoi's philosophy is to provide a disciplined culture of excellence that fosters intellectual curiosity through a partnership with the students, their parents, and the community. Mrs. Ginna Balestrini, Aristoi Elementary Katy Spanish teacher & ESL Coordinator embraced that philosophy when she applied for support through the Young Audiences Arts for Learning of Houston, to bring a unique experience to students. 

Mr. Zachary Browne, Exemplar of Knowledge and Wisdom
At Aristoi Classical Academy, we deeply value our teachers and their drive to instill our students with knowledge, life skills, and the means to become responsible citizens of virtuous character. For this quarter, Aristoi is highlighting and celebrating the recent article published by our very own staff member, Zak Browne.

Aristoi Cypress Student of Virtuous Character
Aristoi Cypress is barely a year old and already students on that campus are demonstrating that they are citizens of virtuous character in and around their communities and it is showing beyond the walls of the school. Meet Elijah, a second grade student who has been with Aristoi since the Cypress campus opened in the fall of 2020. 

A Word of Encouragement from an Aristoi Alumna
Class of 2021 graduate, Laura Castillo, submitted some words of encouragement to bestow upon current Aristoi students.

"I am very grateful for Aristoi because it provided me with teachers who showed me what it looks like to be a good teacher and it inspired me to be one myself. Aristoi woke up a kind of excitement for Truth, Goodness, and Beauty in me that I had not felt quite as strongly before. I learned the most in Aristoi when I learned how to participate in seminars using the Socratic method in class. This not only cultivated wonderful, exciting, and even hilarious discussions but it also set a foundation for some of the most wonderful friendships I have had and I am so grateful that I learned to argue and discuss important topics about humanity..."

Aristoi Alumni, please share your accomplishments with us and you might
see yourself in our next issue!
