About Us
Ryan Dolibois


On behalf of the 350 students Yellowstone Academy is serving this year, I want to thank you for visiting our home on the web. For 15 years, Yellowstone has been a beacon of light in Houston’s Third Ward providing students from families who are economically disadvantaged with a high quality education that will prepare them for their futures. Our students are bright, ambitious, and full of talent. Our job as educators is to make learning a joy for them- so that each day they come to school excited to prepare for their future.

Yellowstone is one of the few schools in the nation that is truly a community endeavor. We ask every family admitted to the school to pay a portion of the tuition costs for their student to attend and the rest of the funding required to operate the school is donated from generous individuals, businesses, churches, and foundations. Our supporters come from more than 40 Houston area zip codes providing the additional support necessary to operate the school.

We invite you to join us and walk side by side as we transform Houston’s educational landscape. Thank you for your prayers, service, and financial contributions that help make us a premier educational institution. Our success as a school is only possible with your support.

At Yellowstone, students receive an education that cultivates their intellect, nourishes their spirit, and empowers them to capitalize on their potential to create fulfilling futures for themselves. By providing an academically rigorous, Christian education, Yellowstone Academy is answering the challenge of the education crisis that faces many economically disadvantaged students.
