A Little History


White Horse Christian Academy began in the spring of 2016 when Vanessa Halford retired after 30 years in public education.  It had always been a dream of Vanessa's to develop a school that met the educational as well as spiritual needs of students.  Since that beginning, White Horse Christian Academy has tripled in size and built a new facility on the outskirts of Stephenville, Texas. 

Vanessa has over 30 years of experience in public education with a BS degree in Education and an M.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling.  She has worked with grades K-12 as a teacher, counselor and program director for both special education and gifted and talented. 

All of the classroom teachers are certified and possess a number of certifications.  These teachers chose to teach at White Horse because of their love for children and the LORD. They strive each day to help their students become independent, confident, and Christian like thinkers.
