Introducing Bezos Academy Houston - South Side

Jun 01, 2023

New Hope Housing believes that linking housing with accessible early education is the key to brighter futures for generations to come. To do this, we have partnered with Bezos Academy to open a tuition-free, Montessori-inspired preschool at our New Hope Housing Reed affordable housing community. 

The Bezos Academy preschool is located at New Hope Housing Reed’s Family Services Center, co-located on the Cornerstone Community® with Star of Hope in the Sunnyside neighborhood. The school, to be named Bezos Academy — Houston South Side, is one of four Bezos Academy locations across Houston.

Scheduled to open its doors in summer 2023, the Bezos Academy caters to children ages 3 to 5 years old, offering a comprehensive curriculum designed to foster early childhood development. The school features two-classrooms and follows full-day, year-round programming, including a focus on literacy, math, sensory development, and social-emotional learning. The school’s Montessori approach allows every child to develop naturally — to learn and grow at their own pace.

We can’t wait to nurture students to be creative leaders, original thinkers, and lifelong learners.

Applications for the Bezos Academy opened earlier this year to eligible families earning up to 400% of the federal poverty level. 

The lottery for the 2023-2024 school year was conducted on June 6, open to Reed families and eligible families in the Sunnyside community. Classes are set to begin in late August 2023.
