About Us


We're a tuition-free, open enrollment public charter school preparing Austin youth to attend and excel at top universities.


We are building the next generation of community leaders by closing the opportunity gap for our scholars and their families. We achieve this goal by providing high-quality public education, and by equipping students to become self-advocates.

Our Pillars

High Expectations

Our curriculum promotes the critical thinking, problem solving, writing and technical skills necessary to pursue young dreams.

Individualized Support

We collect scholar achievement data to make informed decisions on the pace and appropriateness of learning plans for every scholar.

More Class Time

Our longer school days and longer school year add 259 hours of classroom instruction annually, providing more opportunities for scholar learning and growth.

Teachers as Leaders

We focus on recruiting the best educators and empower them to shape curriculum and school culture.

Parents as Partners

We view parents as partners in their children’s education. Parents receive regular updates on their child’s progress and opportunities to participate both at home and at school.

Safe and Nurturing Community

Our schools are safe and stimulating learning environments. We unite school and community through our Parent Advocacy Committee and after school partnerships.
