Welcome to Headwaters School!

Headwaters School is an independent co-ed 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.
In September we hosted conversations for each of our programs that connected current parents with prospective parents. View these sessions at the following links:
