EXPERIENCE A PRIVATE SCHOOL ATMOSPHERE
A TUITION-FREE CLASSICAL SCHOOL IN Austin
At Founders Classical Academy - Austin , seeks to provide a unique and quality classical education that pursues knowledge, promotes virtue, and prepares students for a prosperous life in a free society.
We believe that the pursuit of knowledge is never-ending and we set the foundation for students to be lifelong learners.

We believe that liberty is necessary for citizens to live and participate in a free and just republic.
Founders Classical Academy - Austin seeks to provide a well-rounded education that is distinctively classical, pursues knowledge, promotes virtue, and prepares students for prosperous lives in a free society. The Founders school motto is “scientia virtus et libertas,” which when translated means knowledge, virtue, and liberty. The school motto expresses the idea supported by the Founding Fathers of our nation: if we want to maintain our individual liberties and our societal freedoms, we must have a well-educated and virtuous citizenry.
We believe that the end (goal) of public education in America is to form responsible citizens and virtuous people who are prepared to flourish. We seek the growth of classical schools in general, and Founders in particular, to promote these two essential ends on a national scale. We believe that when classical schools and related educational programs become widespread and the quality of students these schools produce are recognized, we will begin to see a significant transformation in our country in terms of civic outcomes and moral conduct.
