If you’re looking for a top-notch private school to enroll your kids in, look no further than Liberty Christian School in Argyle. Last week, the prestigious academic institution was named the top private school in Texas for the fourth consecutive year by The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS), the largest private school organization in the United States.
TAPPS selects its top school by comparing the academic, fine art and athletic achievements of each school throughout the year. At each state event, Liberty students remained on top, showcasing the academy’s devotion to preparing its students for university life.
Along with being the overall Fine Arts champion for 2016, the school’s dedicated athletes contributed the most points to date toward the statewide tournament.
Although Liberty is one of the smaller schools in Class 5A, the largest division of TAPPS, that didn’t hinder the institution from succeeding in multiple scholarly competitions. In fact, after only be open to students for two years, Liberty had already reached the 2A level, an impressive accomplishment for any newly established private school.
In the early 2000s, the academic institution contended in Class 4A and unsurprisingly won top school eight of nine years. Before long, Liberty’s student body was growing at a tremendous rate, allowing the school to compete in Class 5A in 2010.
When the private school entered the highly competitive division, officials doubted the institution’s ability to acquire the championship title against the biggest schools in TAPPS. However, in only three years, Liberty attained championship status and since then has won three successive years.
“Our students rise to the challenge every year, and I am so proud of them,” said President and Founder of Liberty Christian Dr. Haire, adding that the school’s teachers, coaches and parents play an integral role in the students’ success.
Over 1,300 students celebrated their fourth major triumph in the school’s gym as principals from every level highlighted key student achievements that made Liberty a difficult competitor to beat.
Liberty Christian Headmaster Ed Cook concluded the year-end celebration assembly by presenting Dr. Haire the TAPPS championship trophy on behalf of TAPPS.
“Liberty is a well-balanced school, which is displayed in our wins in academics, fine arts, and athletics,” said Cook. “Our goal each year is to simply give our best and honor Christ, and we celebrate this win and congratulate our students, teachers, coaches, and parents.”
