MISSION & VISION
In 2002 City School was founded by a group of families who shared a vision for a school that would be: “economically diverse, self-consciously Biblical, and recognize that different children need different things but all need to be challenged.” Accordingly, everybody pays something, but tuition is on a sliding scale.
This has created a unique Christian school community that reflects God’s Kingdom in the City of Austin. The name City School was inspired by Augustine’s City of God, which advocates building the Kingdom of God while living in the City of Man. City School always has been meant to honor God and bless Man. Our statement of faith is The Nicene Creed.
City School owns five acres of land in the Dove Springs area of Southeast Austin. We plan to grow our school and expand its influence by developing new school buildings, a large-group meeting space (for the school and various churches that meet here), and an indoor athletics building and community center - as shown in the renderings below.
