​KATY- Several schools are planned for Katy in the next three years including the British International School of Houston, International Leadership of Texas charter school, and the Epiphany School with Epiphany of the Lord Catholic Community church.

The British International School of Houston is moving its campus to the intersection of Westgreen Blvd. and Franz Rd. in Katy in August 2016.

The British International School is building an $80 million, 175,000-sf campus featuring glass and open space.

Epiphany of the Lord Catholic Community Church, on Norwalk Dr. off Highland Knolls Blvd., is fundraising to build a school on its campus.

The parish has raised $2.9 million so far for the estimated $8 million to $10 million school, which would have kindergarten through eighth grade classes. The goal is to have about 550 students and break ground in January 2017.

For its part, St. John XXIII College Preparatory completed an expansion in October, adding a multipurpose student center and dedicated rooms for art and music, among other things.

International Leadership of Texas (IL Texas), a Dallas-based charter school system with elementary, middle and high schools, will be coming to Katy.

IL Texas will open its Katy kindergarten through eighth-grade campus in fall 2016 while opening a campus in Alief at the same time. In fall 2017, IL Texas plans to open a high school between the two K-8 campuses, which will be about 20 miles apart.

Aristoi Classical Academy, which has outgrown the space it leases at Alief Baptist Church in downtown Katy, is also expanding.

The academy is planning to purchase 24 acres on Morton Rd. in Katy for a campus that will eventually be home to a kindergarten through 12th-grade school. Davidson said Aristoi expects to close on its land purchase around April 1 and move students to the new campus by the fall 2017.
