Pioneers in the Microschool and “Pod” Concept

Long before the recent re-emergence of smaller schools, Harry and Pamela Camp founded Camp Education Group (CEG) in 2002. They created the design and standards needed for an innovative private school model and founded Memorial Private School. The school infrastructure is built, not only on research of best practices over the years, but also on neurological practices.

After much research for many years, MPS (“Memorial Private”) opened the first small school in 2004. Of course, this is assuming you are not counting the one-room schoolhouses of the past! The Memorial Private School microschool (also called small schools and pods) has proven to be an incredible solution for secondary education. It has become even more important with the onset of anxiety, COVID, virtual learning, and with our schools becoming too large or overcrowded.

The time has come for a truly improved, and yes, different way of going to school and learning. Whether students are engaged in academics, social interactions, sports, clubs, activities, or spiritual development, Memorial Private School offers a significant change.

The school has a wonderful sense of community where children with different skill sets help and support each other in the classroom. At Memorial Private School, you’re part of a family where everyone fits in and feels as if they belong no matter what circumstances brought them to this wonderful school. —Parents

Key Differences? Low Stress. High Outcomes. Research-Based. 

It is very important to know that Memorial Private School creates a low-stress learning environment, where every student is nurtured. In order to do that effectively, one of the key differentiators of our school is to keep it small, thus the microschool/pod-based design. In the recent past (and present), even many private schools have become way too large and your child becomes a number.

It is a challenge to teach one-to-one and also be in a structured classroom. Memorial Private not only addresses this challenge but keeps raising the bar through innovation and research-based methodologies in microschool education. In doing this, we can really learn about your child and help him or her where needed.

If you are looking for an alternative to homeschooling, public school, or other private schools in West Houston, please feel free to contact us. We are here to serve our community and help you find the right school for your child. 

Where God Makes the Difference. Where We Create Calm.

We offer chapel services to inspire introspection and to create a sense of calm. As a faith-based independent private school, we embrace students from all cultural and religious backgrounds. We practice our strengths, become aware of our gaps, and develop compassion for ourselves and others. We support and guide every student’s qualities, strengths, and the vision they hold for the future.


There are two very important parts of the learning experience. First, a responsible Christian worldview is incorporated throughout the day, and without divisiveness. Quite a feat nowadays! Second, fun and team activities were also part of the normal scholastic experience. It is not easy to find such a combination in education. — Joan, Parent

What Are the Benefits of Research-Based Learning?

Memorial Private School maintains an educational environment small enough to actually be able to reach every teenager. Thus, one benefit is not passing over anyone, which might seem subtle (and is subtle). This is because Memorial Private School uses proven, neuro-educational research-based practices in developing this foundation. This enables the teachers to team up to help every child, and not only that, we work alongside some of the very best universities and companies in the country to deliver a research-based education. Students engage in real research studies, so learning comes alive and students can see the real-world applications. 

In a small private independent school, you can’t hide, so students have the benefit of learning to converse with others, who may not be in their typical teenager group; they learn the value of caring for others, and how to work in teams.

Students develop leadership abilities to not only identify what a leader really does, but to lead and inspire others. Day by day, our students receive a life and college education that helps them develop a growth mindset.

This leads to the kind of intellectual and spiritual maturity we need in the world. We are so proud of our students and their commitment to a growth mindset as they demonstrate responsibility, respectfulness, honesty, kindness, and compassion.
