At Headwaters, our students cultivate identity formation, foster empathy, and embrace diversity to bring more peace to the world. Offering students from diverse backgrounds an education which guides them to become Peacemakers, Advocates, Creators and Thinkers is a core value at our non-profit school. Beginning with a Montessori foundation and progressing to the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme, our independent school serves students from early childhood through grade 12. With your support, we can continue to open our doors a little wider and invite students to live authentically, think expansively, and create bravely.

Through our thoughtful admission process, and in partnership with Breakthrough Austin and other youth advocates across the city, we have assisted students in becoming the first in their family to have a chance to graduate high school and attend college. Your donation to Headwaters School changes the life of a young person today--a young person who will impact the world now and in the future.
