Our Campus

Coming Fall 2020, our campus will be a place for leaders to learn, reflect and grow.

The campus design

The 44-acre site on the shores of Lake Austin will serve as a permanent home for public school educators to develop as leaders, a place they will return to time and again to grow, learn, collaborate, reflect and gather inspiration to take back to their districts.

Design by Lake Flato Architects and Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, the campus will have a distinct identity that draws from landscape elements through the creative use of stone, wood and metal. Read more about our thoughtful and environmentally sensitive design.
