TMI—The Episcopal School of Texas

20955 W Tejas Trail, San Antonio, TX 78257

The school was founded as a boys' military program by Rt. Rev. J. S. Johnston, bishop of the Diocese of West Texas of the Protestant Episcopal Church. In 1926, it merged with San Antonio Academy and the name was changed to Texas Military Institute. The Episcopal Church once again assumed ownership and direction in 1952. The school began admitting girls and expanded to include grades 6-8 in 1972. Two years later, the military program became optional. TMI assumed its current name in 2004. The traditional college preparatory curriculum of the upper school consists of five core fields—English, mathematics, science, social studies and foreign language—supplemented by offerings in the fine arts, athletics, religion and an optional military science program. Honors and Advanced Placement courses provide an additional challenge for the exceptionally capable student. Electives are available in such areas as drama, vocal music, photography, yearbook publication and art. TMI encourages all students to participate in service programs and requires those in grades 9-12 to complete one internal and one external service project (each involving at least four hours of work) annually. JROTC is available to boys and girls beginning in grade 6. The curriculum includes required religion courses, and daily chapel involves both pupils and faculty.
