Our home in Mueller
Dec 29, 2018

 

Sankalpa Academy is a private school in the Mueller neighborhood of Austin, Texas. We are located at 2215 E. M. Franklin Ave., minutes away from downtown and The University of Texas at Austin.

Our school leases space from the Baha'i Faith Center of Austin. We are so very grateful to the Baha'i center for their incredible hospitality and for sharing their space with us. While our physical space in the building is currently limited (6 classrooms, a devotion hall, a cafeteria, an office room and a quiet room), we are working closely with the Baha'i center to explore options for growing this space in the future.

We are also fortunate to be able to lease 2 garden beds from the New Day Community Garden Center (these NDCG plots are right behind the school, next to the center's playground). Our children enjoy their time at these gardens, growing seasonal veggies and donating the produce to Casa Marianella. They learn many valuable gardening and life skills from this opportunity.

Finally, we are blessed to be located so close to Mueller's lake, park, hiking trails and Thinkery. We do make good use of our proximity as and when weather and classroom needs permit.
