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.
