Founded in 1999, the mission of Southwest Middle and High School is to provide children and parents the choice of an exemplary education in a unique, community atmosphere that maintains impeccable standards, respects individuality, cultural diversity, and encourages students 6-12 to reach their true potential.

Unlike public schools, it does not matter where you live, all students are eligible to attend our Charter school.

The main goal of the soccer program is to properly prepare students to go to college. Each student will be expected to take honor level classes when possible and to maintain a minimum of an 85 average in their classes to enter into college and if the momentum keeps going for the individual to play at the college level, as well.
The soccer program will include:

- For boys and girls going to 6th to 12th grade.
- Top soccer trainers from Houston will be conducting the trainings.
- Competition against the top teams in Houston and Texas (year round)
- Participation in 3-5 top tournaments during the year
- Full financial scholarships available
