About Us

Museum Kids Academy (MKA) is conveniently located in Houston’s Museum District.  We operate in an historical home in the heart of the Museum district.  Built in 1942,  we are only  minutes from the Children’s Museum and other museum locations.

 

OUR MISSION

Museum Kids Academy promotes and nurtures the intellectual, cultural, and physical development of our students through direct hands-on experiences, while collaborating with our parents. Our mission is to see that each child shines in his or her own way.

PHILOSOPHY

Museum Kids believes in the education of the whole child.  The Museum Kids Academy child is nurtured in intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth.  The parents, the essential educators, work in partnership with our staff and teachers to accomplish this goal.  We hope to empower our students with the belief that they can successfully move forward in their academics and life.

VISION

To challenge and stimulate young minds in a safe and healthy home-like environment.

We strive to be a place where:

  • Students enjoy learning
  • Children are encouraged to be lifelong learners and problem solvers through the integration of technology, math, science, language arts, music, art, and physical education.
  • Students are encouraged to perform good deeds by serving others through the gift of giving.
  • Cultural awareness is fostered and our children are encouraged to accept and respect one’s differences in a warm and caring environment.
