About Austin Children's Academy

Founded in 2007, Austin Children's Academy (ACA) is a local, family-owned & operated private Montessori school located in a north Austin major suburb and city formally known as Cedar Park.

We understand each child is special and unique in their own way. It is for these reasons that the Montessori pedagogy is so successful, empowering each child and enabling them to excel in life. We help inspire and discovery the joy of learning.


Our mission at Austin Children’s Academy is to guide and encourage the natural development of the "whole person" in a Montessori learning community by addressing the uniqueness of each child in a nurturing, emotionally secure and academically inspiring environment.


Through the collaborative partnership of our teachers, parents, children and the community, a commitment to communication, honesty and mutual respect is developed to foster the “joy of learning.” At Austin Children’s Academy, we are dedicated to the success of our students and teachers, both in school and in life.


–Family: We believe is a fundamental foundation to success.
–Knowledge: We seek understanding and intellectual stimulation using the Montessori philosophy and believe learning is a lifelong process.
–Respect: We show consideration and courtesy towards all people and their perspectives.
–Excellence– We strive to be capable and effective at what we do, and we maintain a commitment to excellence in all that we do.
–Diversity– We value and promote the diversity of people, ideas, and opinions.
–Integrity– We work to ensure that our practices are always aligned with our beliefs and that we are honest in our actions and in our words.
–Community– We recognize the connectedness and inter-reliance of all people; the value of teamwork and cooperation; and the importance of finding common ground in our interactions with one another.
–Sustainability– We recognize our role within our environment and are dedicated to creating processes that conserve and preserve the world that we live in.


ACA has been voted "Favorite Montessori School '' by Austin Family Magazine 5-years in-a-row (2018 - 2022) and recognized as “Top Private School” by Austin Monthly. Magazine.


ACA encourages teachers and families towards community involvement. ACA has a partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Each year, ACA honors a family and grants a child their "wish." This past year we were able send Mia and her family to Hawaii to grant her wish of "swimming with dolphins."

“I was employed as an intern by ACA as a floater/assistant teacher. My experience with the school was amazing. The management and administrative teams were super supportive, responsible, and were always there for me when I needed them. The school has an open door policy which they most definitely stick to. The management team is always ready to answer a question right away or within a of couple moments. The teachers there are also supportive. As a new employee, I felt comfortable asking questions. They would go out of their way to teach me what they were doing and why they were doing it. This was very helpful as I knew exactly what was going on the next time I was in their classroom. Overall, I have had a positive experience with ACA and would highly recommend it for students who are going into the education field, and/or are interested in seeing how the Montessori method is used in a Preschool setting.”
