The History of Hyde Park Schools
Hyde Park Schools is a Christ-centered, college preparatory school in Austin, Texas. It serves 4K through 12th-Grade students and is a ministry of Hyde Park Baptist Church with campuses in Central Austin and Northwest Austin.
Hyde Park Schools began as a Child Development Center (CDC) in 1968. In the fall of 1968, Kindergarten began for 5-year-olds, and the school began to add one grade per year until it reached sixth grade. As the school began to grow, it separated from the CDC and formed the Hyde Park Baptist School system. HPS Elementary School’s mission was to provide the opportunity for an excellent Christian education to the Austin community. HPS Elementary was fully accredited by the Texas Education Agency in the 1970s.
The school's accredited Junior/Senior High School began in the fall of 1980. The purpose of the new secondary school was to prepare young people for college with a firm foundation built on Christ. In 2003, the HPS Athletics complex opened at the Hyde Park Quarries location in Northwest Austin. In Fall 2009, the new, state-of-the-art Hyde Park High School campus opened at the Quarries.
In keeping with its heritage of academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment, over 99% of all Hyde Park Schools graduates go on to higher education.
