Thank You Gala Sponsors!

Since 1973, Huntington-Surrey has been building something special: College Prep With Heart, an unparalleled marriage of academic rigor with personalized community warmth. We’ve spent decades honing and fine-tuning our model: bringing together a top-flight, passionate corps of teachers; empowering our students to co-create a vibrant, inclusive campus life; initiating generations of students into the long tradition of the liberal arts through a comprehensive college-prep academic curriculum, with our signature program, Individual Literature, at its heart; successfully transitioning from a family business to a nonprofit in 2017; and, most recently, supporting our alumni in the creation of the Huntington-Surrey Alumni Association, an organization established and led by and for graduates of the school.


Now, all that effort – those decades of creation, expansion, hard work, and community cultivation – is culminating: for the first, last, and only time, in 2023 Huntington-Surrey turns 50! That’s right – a full half-century of transforming students’ lives and offering a truly irreplaceable independent educational alternative in the heart of Austin.
