Our People

From student to staff, parent to peer group, donor to director—every single person involved with Archway is absolutely vital to our collective success, and to the culture of gratitude, humor, hope, and love that inspires real trust and real transformation.

We could not be more proud of our community, and we invite you to connect with the wonderful individuals and organizations who keep us moving forward each day.

Student Life

Archway students are brilliant and sensitive, fearless and funny as hell. They are our future. And if we expect them to succeed—they will.

Follow Us

Join us on March 18th at 12 PM (CST) to learn how art can be used as a self-care tool and form of self-expression and regulation. This FREE CEU event will examine stressors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, explore how accumulated stress affects us long-term, and provide an opportunity to practice an expressive arts activity.

We are proud to partner with Sarah Gallup at Gomez Counseling & Counsulting for this presentation. Sarah is an LPC with a specialized focus in trauma healing and recovery with teens and adults.

Link to the event can be found on the event page of our website or events tab on FB.

Keeping students sober and in class is our priority. While our organization plays a dual role, our staff do not. We’re not therapists who tutor or teachers who counsel, but specialists in our respective fields in close communication with each other and our students throughout the school day.

BOARD SPOTLIGHT ⠀
Help us welcome aboard new Archway Academy board member, Clifton Gillock @keepinitchill.⠀

Clifton began his journey in recovery as a student of Archway Academy. His life is driven by recovery and a passion for running his small Houston based business, @KICPOPS. Clifton has been nominated and awarded numerous awards for the company’s artisan ice pop flavors. ⠀

When he’s not building his small business or helping others, you can typically find him in the outdoors, volunteering for the next big adventure with his friends and family, or at home cuddled up with his wife and Weimaraner.⠀

We are thankful to our board members and all that they do to help us meet our mission of providing a supportive and sober learning environment to meet the individual educational needs of adolescents in recovery. ⠀

We’re proud to offer a “rolling admissions” policy, which allows for a student to be admitted at any time during the semester when feasible. 📆

The words we use matter. When we know better, we can do better. ⠀

The word “CLEAN” is often used in reference to a state of a person being abstinent from drugs of misuse.

The term has been viewed as potentially stigmatizing because of its pejorative connotation, with the opposite being “dirty.”

The use of proper medical terminology is far less stigmatizing. For instance, instead of "clean" we can simply describe someone as in remission or recovery.
