Our Mission

The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools commits to building leadership, fellowship, fair play and sportsmanship of students enrolled in the organization’s member schools in the areas of academics, athletics and fine arts by providing wholesome competition for young men and women.

Our Vision

TAPPS envisions itself as an organization whose members maintain their distinct world views, practices and traditions while respecting those of others, in order to promote wholesome competition for young men and women. TAPPS firmly believes that competition among its diverse member schools and students promotes among the competitors and their schools understanding, fellowship and excellence.

Our History

Chartered in 1978, the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) serves to organize, stimulate, encourage and promote the academic, athletic and fine arts programs in an effort to foster a spirit of fair play, good fellowship, true sportsmanship and wholesome competition for boys and girls. From a humble beginning of 20 member schools in 1978, twelve of which remain members, TAPPS has grown to a membership of 230 schools with a combined enrollment of over 40,000 students. Schools are presently aligned in five classifications with districts across the state of Texas.
