Looking for a small, independent, alternative school near you? Find it in one of the elementary, middle, or high school maps below. Scroll all the way down for a map of great play-based preschools.
Use the navigation and zoom tools to adjust your view. Click the map markers for schools’ street addresses (or, for some home-based programs, their approximate locations). Note that some schools appear on more than one map because they serve larger age ranges. To easily compare details of particular schools, consult our Alternative School Directory, and for more in-depth information on the programs that most interest you, please visit their websites.
Full disclosure: Alt Ed Austin director Teri Sperry has ties with several of the schools listed on this site. Her child has attended two of them. She has friends and collaborators who direct, teach at, or are otherwise involved in others. Some programs choose to advertise from time to time on Alt Ed Austin as Sponsoring Partners. She firmly believes that all of the schools featured on this site (including the ones to which she has no personal connection and those from which she receives no advertising fees) are great choices for some kids, each for different reasons.
