Essence Prep plans to open its new campus at 439 SE Loop 410 for the spring semester of the 2023-24 school year. School leaders will ceremonially break ground on the new site on December 16, 2022. 

The new building will house approximately 65,000 square feet of academic and administrative space, along with a 6,000-square-foot gymnasium. The two-story building will accommodate up to 1,100 students in kindergarten through 8th grade. The site will also include a playground and field. 



Essence Prep opened this year in a temporary space at St. Benedict Catholic Church, educating 149 scholars from kindergarten through 5th grade. The charter school will add a grade level yearly until it reaches 8th grade. Under its charter from the TEA, Essence Prep can offer classes in kindergarten through 8th grade for up to 1,080 students. 

We are accepting applications for Kindergarten – 6th grade for the 2023-2024 school year. If you are interested in joining Essence Prep or sending a sibling next year, submit your application here:
