School Website

Nestled in the heart of Southtown, Bonham Academy was founded in 1893. This unique school maintains a strong history of family and community involvement. Our small school is a safe environment for students to explore their interests. With a focus on our three pillars: language, fine arts, and science, our school is committed to ensuring all of our students have the opportunities they deserve. As a neighborhood school, we serve students primarily from King William and Lavaca. We have the opportunity to also serve students outside of our attendance zone. We look forward to the opportunity to serve your familias.
