Texas Preparatory Schools are tuition free charter schools that focus on developing the whole child through project based learning for grades Kindergarten through sixth. We are conveniently located on two campuses, in San Marcos and Austin. Our all day model allows students to explore music and the arts, a variety of enrichment activities, as well as a range of programs in social and emotional learning.

Enrichment activities is our vehicle to teach our students the attitudes and habits required to do well not just academically but in life.


Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
