History & Mission

“Everyone can achieve”

Emma Lee Broady’s educational journey was rooted in San Antonio, Texas.  She graduated from Phyllis Wheatley High School May 31, 1945.  After beginning her post secondary studies at St. Phillip’s College, Mrs. Broady attended Prairie View A&M and she graduated on May 21, 1950 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Home Economics.  For 22 years she continued to impact the lives of young people while teaching at Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Mrs. Broady had an unwavering faith in God and in the value of education.  She believed that everyone could achieve.  The School’s motto, “It’s Never Too Late To Graduate” was a theme she exemplified to the many people who crossed her path.  Though she has gone to be with our Lord, Mrs. Broady would be delighted to know that her passion for the success of others continues to live on through Broady Academy which bears her name. We salute the life of this inspiring black woman who through faith and dedication blazed the trail for others to follow.

 E. L. Broady Academy’s Core Beliefs

The Bible
The Bible is the “Word of God.”

God the Father
God the Father is the Creator of everything. He is Omniscient, Omnipresent, and Omnipotent. God is love.

God the Son, Jesus Christ
Jesus was born of a virgin and came as the once-for-all atonement for the sins of everyone who would accept Him as Savior.

God, the Holy Spirit
He is the author of the Scriptures, the comforter of the saints and assists the believers’ prayers.

A Brief Perspective on the Gifts and Baptism of the Holy Spirit
In salvation, the Holy Spirit brings the sinner to conviction and repentance of sins, gives faith in Jesus Christ’s death as payment for his sins, and brings salvation.

Man was created in God’s own image. Man was created with a physical nature, a mind and will, and a spiritual nature.

Salvation is “the gift of God.” Man must repent – turn from their sin; place their faith in what Jesus did for them on the cross.

Security of the Believer and Assurance of Salvation
Sinners are saved by the grace of God alone and kept “saved” by God’s grace alone.

The Church
The word “church” means “called out ones.” The true church is made up of people who have accepted Jesus as Savior and followed Him in believer’s baptism. The characteristics of a New Testament church are found in Acts 2. They are worship, evangelism, teaching, discipleship, community among believers, stewardship and service to others.

Baptism is a Greek word that means to immerse, plunge or submerge. Jesus was baptized to establish an example for believers. It is a step of obedience to Jesus, following salvation.

The Lord’s Supper (Communion) was instituted by Jesus. It is a remembrance of what He did for us on the cross. The elements of the Lord’s Supper (the fruit of the vine and the unleavened bread) are symbolic of Jesus’ blood and His body.

Worship is not an activity of the mind; it is a response of the heart.


Believers have a responsibility to care for what God has entrusted to them. (Adopted by the Governing Board March 8, 2020)


The Broady Academy philosophy is to provide a Christian based educational opportunity that helps our students learn not only about our Lord and Savior, but helps guide them to fulfill their God given vocational purpose. We also recognize that traditional brick and mortar schools are not for every student and we offer an option that exposes our students to another way to be productive and responsible citizens regardless of past educational experiences. We support parents by coaching their students to educational success in a digital environment. We help our students advance or complete their education and move forward to a more productive educational and/or work experience. We realize that it is often hard to visualize the love of God while enduring life challenges. A lack of educational success sometimes gives way to feelings of hopelessness. Not only do we help our students achieve academic success, we try to reach their inner spirit to assure them that God has a plan for their life. Through our online school environment, we foster educational success and give the glory to God! We endeavor to help all our students experience our slogan, that “It’s Never Too Late to Elevate!”
