Huntington-Surrey School admits students throughout the school year.
Students who have chosen to learn the Huntington-Surrey way are usually bright, divergent thinkers who want small, personal classes that are highly interactive and student-centered. We have students from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances, but one thing they all share is that they have chosen to be here.
Prospective students and their parents must be interviewed by the school directors and must present a transcript of past work.
We are not able to admit foreign students who are not already legal residents of the U.S.
Tuition for 2012/2013 is $10,800 per year. Most parents choose to pay by the month, which works out to $1200 per month for 9 months (September through May). Friday electives cost an additional $200 per course per semester.
When parents sign a contract, the last month's tuition is paid in advance, along with a $500 processing fee. This $1700 deposit is nonrefundable.
To arrange an interview, please call Johni or Light at 512-478-4743.
Huntington-Surrey's mission is to offer schooling to bright, divergent thinkers, from eighth to twelfth grade, who desire a more personal, student-centered school. We prepare students for lifelong learning so that they may successfully meet the many challenges of the twenty-first century.
We equip students with the knowledge, skills, and understanding that will allow them to make decisions conscientiously and take responsibility for those decisions. We encourage students to demonstrate open-minded tolerance for others' choices.
Our goal is to facilitate the students' intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, ethical, and social growth by providing a learning environment that is nurturing, accepting, challenging, and enjoyable. We teach students how to think, not what to think.
Teaching Philosophy at Huntington-Surrey School
Students are the focus.
As much as we may know, we are not here for self-aggrandizement.
Students and teachers must show each other respect.
Every class must be a careful balance between our sharing our knowledge and the students' learning to express their ideas and support their ideas.
As teachers, we need to maintain an atmosphere of sharing that allows the voicing of all opinions supported by what the students know from their reading, the media, and life experience.
Students must show their peers respect and courtesy. No student may bully or speak badly to another.
Our goals are these:
