Partnering with Local Nonprofits

Community partnerships are incredibly important. They keep us connected with our fellow Austinites and give our students opportunities to develop as community leaders. Our parents and students help local organizations like El Buen SamaritanoCentral Texas Food Bank, and Mobile Loaves & Fishes.

Mom and son volunteering for the Thanksgiving food drive

In the fall, we partner with El Buen Samaritano, an outreach ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, on the Hands for Hope food drive. El Buen serves the Latino community of Central Texas and works to ensuring access to healthcare, education, and essential needs that lead to healthy, productive, and secure lives.


 

In the summer of 2022, we partnered with Liberty Ukraine Foundation to provide a school space for Ukrainian families displaced by war. 


 

Our Horizons program is dedicated to closing the achievement gap and minimizing summer learning loss for students at high-risk of dropping out of high school. We host about 100 students during the summer.


 

A Global Perspective

We have a commitment to seek and serve God in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves, respecting the dignity of every human being (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 305). Our commitment to community service extends well beyond Austin, Texas, and even outside the United States! Students have an opportunity over the summer to volunteer at a school in Peru, and we financially support a school in Haiti.

 

 

Ubuntu

Each January, we begin the new calendar year by celebrating the African philosophy of Ubuntu: "I am because we are; we are because I am." It's a celebration of humanity, both locally and globally. We weave Ubuntu themes into Chapel and the curriculum, and we highlight our support for the organization Ubuntu Life Foundation, which provides access to essential services and promote social inclusion for children with special educational and physical needs throughout Kenya.
