Florida-based charter school network plans Kyle/Buda-area campus in 2020


Doral Academy Texas, a tuition-free charter school that will focus on science, technology, engineering and math, is in the process of establishing a campus in the Kyle/Buda area that will open for the 2020-21 school year.

The school will be part of Doral Academy Inc., a network of charter schools that was founded in Doral, Fla.—just outside of Miami—and now has six schools there, as well as five schools in Las Vegas and one in Colorado.

Though it will initially enroll around 600 students in grades K-6, Doral Academy Texas plans to eventually expand to serve grades K-12.

On March 3, the school held an informational meeting at Cabela’s in Buda; it will next hold two more meetings at the Buda Public Library, 405 E. Loop St., on Oct. 6 from 12:30-3 p.m. and Nov. 3 from 12:30-3 p.m.


In August, IDEA became the first charter school to open in the Kyle/Buda area; it serves 600 students at its campus on Philomena Drive in Kyle.
