PSIA was born out of multiple requests from parents of private and home-schooled students while the organization’s founder served as Director of Academic Development for the University Interscholastic League (UIL) in Austin. The overarching goal of academic competition, however, remains similar to that established by both the UIL and the PSIA charter members--the improvement of schools and individuals through the pursuit of excellence in academic competition.
