Kirby Hall School is a Pre-K4 through 12th grade private school located in Austin right next to the University of Texas. The mission of Kirby Hall is to prepare bright young people for a life of academic success, personal fulfillment, and dedicated service to their local, national and global community. Having a gifted faculty that has genuine affection for children and teenagers, sets high standards for academic achievement by recognizing and rewarding individual strengths. Kirby Hall pursues its goals with both a Socratic teaching style and small class sizes, where individual attention is not only possible but is given daily to each student. We believe that children achieve and grow in a more holistic way when they are well-nurtured, happy, and joyful. Kirby Hall students ultimately go forward in their lives knowing both how to succeed in the world themselves and how to make it a better place for others.
