Sankalpa Academy is a private school in Austin, Texas that pursues excellence in early childhood education. We provide purposeful education for life through awareness. At Sankalpa, education is holistic, foundational and individualized. Every child receives a gifted education through an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). We achieve this through an assessment of a child's developmental climate and core competencies. This understanding is used to design learning experiences that are meaningful and foundational. Our individualized curriculum is carefully crafted by our master teachers and specialists in developmental psychology, so every child works at a level that is most relevant and appropriate for him/her.
Our mission is to develop authentic seekers and change makers who pursue purposeful lives. We strongly believe that education should help a child recognize and reach her/his potential so the child would grow up to be confident, ethical and emotionally, intellectually and physically ready for what life has to offer.
Sir Ken Robinson, Dr. Dan Siegel and so many others have emphasized the significance of "soft" skills such as empathy and grit. Sankalpa Academy believes these are core competencies and that these should be cultivated through a vertically integrated curriculum. Natural Learning Foundation invites Sankalpa Academy for a discussion on this important topic at the North Village campus of the Austin Public Library.

In the first blog post, we investigate the assertion that all children should receive gifted education. As Matthew Mugo Fields, the Founder of GiftedandTalented.com says, “gifted and talented” has to be the goal for every child and not a gate through which a small percentage enter. In the second post, we look closely at what gifted education should entail. We make a case for why education needs to be cognizant of a child’s core competencies such as empathy and grit. And, finally, the third post explores how the curriculum should go beyond mere awareness and actually nurture and develop these competencies. For Sankalpa Academy, this is not just an aspiration, it is our mission.
