Building on the success of last spring’s alt school tour, the Education Transformation Alliance presents a free day of open houses at some of Austin’s most creative and effective independent schools. Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 20, download the printable guide and map, and design your own itinerary for the day. Morning and afternoon sessions are divided roughly by geographical region for your convenience.
As a proud sponsor of the event, Alt Ed Austin invites you to spend some time with the Alternative School Directory before the tour. This will help you narrow down which ones might work for your family in terms of ages served, philosophy, size, and other factors. You'll also find a couple of special tour sites in the More Alt Ed Programs directory.
By far the best way to get a feel for a school and its fit for your kid is to visit it in person and talk to the staff and community members you meet there. Ask all the questions you can think of; these educators love to discuss the work they love. You’re welcome to bring the whole family for a day of exploration.
Hop on the tour and see how education is being transformed—right here in Austin, right now.
