The History of Dexter
Dexter was founded in 2018 by a group of engineers, and named after the word Dexterity, which means readiness and grace in physical and mental activity. Dexter started as an after-school and summer program to promote STEM learning. Our camps centered around intensifying the learning experience for students who are interested in STEM.
In 2018, our first cohort of 20 students (grades 3-10) began in the historic "Big Blue" building in downtown Wichita Falls. In 2021, we acquired the campus we currently use. Through much staff dedication and hard work, we have risen to a student population of about 130 on-campus students and received accreditation to offer high school diplomas to graduating students.
