The story of Annapolis began with a group of parents and a vision of educational excellence. Inspired by the classical Christian philosophy of education, this visionary group of parents began making plans to found a school that would promote high academic standards, foster a robust Christian faith, train students in virtue, and equip them with the wisdom and leadership skills necessary to impact their culture. By God’s grace, they obtained a generous grant to renovate the old Second Baptist church building in downtown Corpus Christi and opened for instruction in September of 1995 with 99 students.
Since that time, Annapolis has seen steady growth in both enrollment and the maturity of its programs, requiring the occupation of four separate facilities throughout its history. In the spring of 2008, Annapolis’ growth reached a critical point, prompting the school board to embark on a campaign to purchase a permanent campus to foster Annapolis’ continued growth and continued impact on the Coastal Bend community for generations to come.
In May of 2009, Annapolis became accredited with the Association of Classical and Christian Schools and purchased the historic 14-acre Parkdale Baptist Church campus at 3875 S. Staples. With its forty-three-foot spire pointing heavenward, its magnificent gothic-inspired architecture, and its beautiful sanctuary and educational facilities, the Parkdale campus visibly communicates Annapolis’ commitment to the classical Christian principles of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.
In 2016, we began construction on a new playground and the new Jack L. Carter School of Rhetoric. The new playground was completed in April of 2019. The new building will finish at 18,000 square feet and include 2 science labs, a digital library, classrooms, and a common space to be used for small groups and study times. It will also include a courtyard for outdoor class time and small group study.
