Welcome to Headwaters School!

Headwaters School is an independent co-ed private day school in Austin, Texas serving students from 18 months old through grade 12. Founded in 2001, we design vibrant learning environments across our three campuses: our Early Childhood campus in South Austin, our Elementary campus in Southwest Austin, and our Middle & High School campus in Downtown Austin.

Beginning with a Montessori foundation and progressing to the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme, we invite all of our students to become Peacemakers, Advocates, Creators, and Thinkers.

Learn More at Our Weekly Tours

Starting in late September, you can join our Admissions Director in a small-group setting to learn about our curriculum, program offerings, and admissions process. Additionally, we have adapted our admissions tours into monthly online experiences for those who are unable to attend in person. 

Complete the Connect With Us form on this page, and we will send you information about how to attend.
  • Early Childhood (18 months to 5 years for half-day and full-day Pre-K) tours are on most Wednesday mornings.
  • Elementary (Kindergarten to 5th Grade) tours are on most Thursday mornings.
  • Middle and High School (6th-12th Grade) tours are on most Tuesday mornings.

Attend an Open House

Headwaters School hosts Open Houses for each program two times a year––in the fall semester and in January. 

We will provide registration links in September for the fall open houses. In the meantime, if you are interested in viewing the recordings from any of our past events, please email admissions@headwaters.org.
