When the Federal government enforced school integration, many white parents sought ways to keep their children from attending integrated schools. Winston Academy was founded in 1969 to provide white children a segregated education.
In 1969, the Louisville-Winston Educational Foundation voted to establish the school after receiving a report on the "public school situation facing our country". Foundation president David Richardson told a crowd of 300 citizens gathered at the county courthouse that "The only choice open to parents who want their children to continue to receive a high caliber education is to support a private school system in Winston County."
In the fall of 1970, the school stopped holding classes in local churches and moved into its permanent campus.
