Huntington-Surrey School Profile

We are College Prep With a Heart. 100% of our graduates at Huntington-Surrey School are accepted into college. 

We are a private high school in Austin, Texas, for grades 9 through 12, with a focus on learning and preparation for college–as well as for life. Our student-to-teacher ratio is the smallest of any private school in Austin at no more than 8-1 for core classes and 1-1 in literature.

This small class size allows for teachers the flexibility to utilize multiple teaching strategies and the ability to know each student on a personal level. 

We focus on a positive learning environment and have done so since 1973. Our teachers provide a strong academic program and moral support as their students gain confidence and a sense of responsibility.

We see ourselves as a safe haven where bright, divergent-minded students are encouraged to think for themselves and are taught how to effectively communicate their ideas. 

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to prepare our students for college and life while honoring each one as an individual who adds value to the world

Our Mission

Huntington-Surrey’s mission is to provide a high-quality education to bright, divergent thinkers from ninth to twelfth grade who prefer a smaller school environment and a more personalized academic experience. 


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 and tools that will empower them to make decisions conscientiously, and to crate a life of happiness and success.

Our staff models open-mindedness, social awareness, and a continued curiosity about the world around us. We teach students how to think, not what to think. 


It is important to note that Huntington-Surrey School’s accreditor is the prestigious Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, known as AdvancED – SACS. Our international accreditation is further backed by the fact that SACS is the same body that accredits the University of Texas at Austin, and it is widely recognized as a leading accreditation body in Texas and throughout the United States.



Huntington-Surrey is not a religious school. We are located on the property of Highland Park Baptist Church in Austin, but we are not affiliated, directed, or associated with religious teaching of our host church or with any other religious institution. Our school community welcomes anyone from any background.
