Named for Hightower Theodore Kealing, a 19th Century Black educator, writer, editor, and activist, Kealing Middle School opened in the fall of 1930 as the first middle school for African-American students in Austin. In 1971, the school was closed as part of Austin's desegregation efforts. In 1986, the school reopened as a middle school, both for students in the Kealing neighborhood and for students throughout Austin ISD who were accepted into its rigorous and innovative Magnet math and science program. The Kealing Academy Program, staff, families and community work together to support students in the Academy and Magnet programs daring to excel as "One School, Multiple Programs, Success for All."

Con el nombre de Hightower Theodore Kealing, un educador, escritor, editor y activista afroamericano del siglo XIX, la Escuela Secundaria Kealing abrió en el otoño de 1930 como la primera escuela secundaria para estudiantes afroamericanos en Austin. En 1971, se cerró la escuela como parte de los esfuerzos de desegregación de Austin. En 1986, la escuela volvió a abrir como una escuela secundaria, tanto para los estudiantes en el vecindario de Kealing como para los estudiantes del Austin ISD aceptados en su riguroso e innovador programa especializado de matemáticas y ciencias. El Programa de la Academia Kealing, el personal, las familias y la comunidad trabajan juntos para apoyar a los estudiantes en los programas de la Academia y el programa especializado, atreviéndose a destacarse como "una escuela, varios programas, éxito para todos".
