✨ Archway Success Story!

In 2011, I graduated from Archway, a pivotal moment that would shape my unforeseen journey.

Fast forward to today, with a degree from the University of Houston in hand, I now proudly serve as a high school English teacher —a career path I could have never envisioned during my tumultuous high school years, especially amidst battling addiction before finding sobriety.

Following intensive inpatient and outpatient treatment, I eventually discovered Archway, which became my lifeline, offering me a second chance at life. Returning to my former high school would have likely led me back down a destructive path.

Archway, with its supportive environment and scholarship program, provided me with the opportunity to escape that toxic cycle. Without it, I would have been left with no choice but to return to my old public high school, where graduation wouldn’t have been merely challenging—it would have been impossible.

I owe my academic success entirely to Archway. Today, as a teacher and a mother, my life resonates with love and purpose because I was granted the chance to rewrite my story and walk a different, more fulfilling path.

💙 Why Archway Academy?

Because here, education and recovery go hand in hand. 📚

Archway Academy offers a beacon of hope and support for high school students navigating the challenging journey of recovery from substance use disorder and mental health challenges.

With nearly 1,000 high school students in Houston alone in treatment or recovery programs, Archway Academy's critical mission addresses a desperate need.

The sobriety rate for teens returning to traditional schools post-treatment plummets to 20% within the first 90 days. 🚨

Why? Because traditional high schools lack the necessary support staff and accountability that Archway provides. 🙌

Our school is more than just a place to learn; it's a community where students are embraced at all stages of their recovery and educational journeys.


Archway’s Annual Golf Tournament presented by Marek Brothers, Tellepsen Contruction, Mustang Cat, & Linbeck is just around the corner on Thursday April 11th!

This year we honor former Board President John Putnam, his influence and dedication have significantly elevated the profile and success of our annual golf tournament, turning it into a cornerstone of our fundraising efforts. His vision and commitment to creating positive change in our community through this event have left an indelible mark, making him a respected and cherished member of our organization.

Special thanks to all of our generous sponsors:

Marek Brothers, Tellepsen Contruction, Mustang Cat, Linbeck

Your commitment to our mission ensures our students have the support they need to thrive.

🎓✨ Graduating from Archway Academy isn't just a ceremony or about getting a diploma; it's a monumental achievement that marks a new beginning for our students and their families.

Against all odds, and in the face of challenges that once made the idea of graduation feel distant, our students have proven that it's never too late for change and growth.

This celebration is a testament to their resilience, hard work, and the unwavering support of their loved ones and the Archway community.

We are all looking forward to watching our 19 seniors walk across the stage and start their next chapter and succeed as young adults in recovery.

Being of service to others is a cornerstone of recovery.

Archway alumnus, Paul held a fundraiser to purchase sleeping bags and blankets for the homeless. The fundraiser was a success, and we were able to help raise over $6000!

The theme for Friday Fill-up two weeks ago was community service. During that time, students helped organize the sleeping bags and blankets.

Yesterday Paul and some of our students delivered the items to a local shelter. 🥰

Our Story

Archway Academy is the nation’s largest sober high school. We are located in the heart of Houston, Texas. We meet the individual educational needs of teens recovering from substance use disorder with care, compassion, respect, and rigor.

Instead of returning students to the same environments in which they’re most at risk for relapse—or where it’s nearly impossible to catch back up academically after treatment—Archway provides a structured place for teens to continue both their recovery and their education without compromising either.
