Founder Reverend William Lawson celebrates 93 years in June, 2021.

His vision for young people has created The Lawson Academy, a charter middle school in Houston’s Third Ward.

In its 20 years, the Academy has helped hundreds of students become successful in high school and beyond.

This year, Academy launched Project Elevate to advance the prospects and security of our next two decades of students, just as Reverend Lawson did for the last two. How? Through improvements in the school’s curriculum, preparing students for an increasingly on-line world, and strengthening our attention to at-risk students.
