What’s in a name? At The Girls’ School of Austin, our name is the simplest expression of our mission: to provide an intellectually challenging education for girls in a supportive and creative environment, and to inspire girls to achieve personal excellence and go on to lead distinguished and fulfilling lives.
We are Austin’s first school for girls from elementary through middle school (K-8) and the only all-girls school for grades K-4.
The Girls’ School of Austin opened its doors in 2002 – or perhaps we should say, we opened a single door. At a small home in west Austin, our school began instruction with five students in fifth and sixth grades, and the teachers outnumbered the students.

You may already appreciate that a private education affords a finer level of individual attention for your daughter. But why choose The Girls’ School? Read more from our Head of School, Lisa Schmitt.
Our Community Service Program involves our girls in the wider Austin community in order to support girls in developing the knowledge and skills to become capable and responsible participants in the world.
Our community service activities promote cooperation and problem-solving skills and build appreciation of basic human needs such as access to food, clothing and shelter.
