About Us

About Wayside Schools:

Wayside Schools believes a child’s future should not be determined by a family’s income level. We challenge the status quo by providing a free, high-quality education to South Austin’s most underserved communities so that every child, regardless of their background, is college ready.


Wayside Schools is an open-enrollment, tuition-free PreK3-12 public charter school network that provides over 2,000 students across its four South Austin campuses with a rigorous International Baccalaureate education. We are united in a mission to prepare college-ready students who are active in their communities and competitive in an increasingly global market.


Mission and Vision:

At Wayside Schools we prepare College Ready, Community Engaged, Global Citizens. Our Vision is to grow to serve 2,500 scholars in South Austin ensuring all Wayside Schools graduates receive IB Diplomas and reach 100% College Acceptance, Matriculation and Graduation.
