    Much of school design is impersonal: standardized experiences, ‘factory-like’ scheduling, test-based learning.

    Waterloo is ‘student-centered’ in design— around personal growth and healthy relationships—with each other, the world, and learning.

    Who we are and who we become is more important (and more important to our future success) than how we perform on tests.

    The Waterloo learning experience is grounded in close, meaningful relationships with mentors, peers, and our neighbors in Austin.

    And it starts with seeing each student as unique, with particular God-given gifts meant to be used for individual growth and for the world.

    Our courses lead to student-designed projects that demonstrate real learning. They allow you to discover and follow your passions and interests across the curriculum. As you make connections, you can earn credits in multiple subjects— psychology with biology, civics with history, film-making with English—through a single project.

    Limited only by what isn’t connected in our world! (and that’s very little…) Because we give you the standards, and set you free… to discover and create.

    Each course lasts for only a trimester.
    Classes meet in large blocks of time, four days a week.

    Friday is left open for the personal extras— tutoring, hobbies, community, internships, discovering Austin, service, rest. This still gives us 20% more learning time for each course—deeper and longer!

    Oh yeah, and the school day starts at 9 A.M.
