Griffin School is a college preparatory high school community defined by academic rigor and creativity.
Our mission is to cultivate individual potential and intellectual curiosity in a vibrant and engaged community. Founded in 1996 and fully accredited, Griffin School provides students with a high school program that values individuality, creativity, and community. We recognize that for many gifted and creative students, the structures inherent in traditional high schools can limit and impede the development of academic, social, and emotional growth. Our school enables these students to succeed through interactive classes capped at 12 students and academic programming that fosters artistic expression, critical thinking, and genuine involvement in the school and Austin community.
