Austin Can Academy Principal’s Message

Austin Can Academy Principal\'s Message

Greetings to you all. Welcome to Austin Can Academy, a school that focuses on the highest quality education for all students, especially those who have struggled in a traditional high school setting, in order to ensure their economic independence

At Austin Can Academy we believe that we offer the very best of teaching and learning that has been specially tailored to meet the needs of the young people of Austin Can Academy. The popularity of the school is not accidental; careful planning and programming, the selection of excellent staff and a willingness to innovate in educational provision have all contributed to the high level of academic success achieved by students at the school.
At Austin Can we pride ourselves on the “POUNDING OF THE ROCK” motto. Jacob Riis quotes

“When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”

Our staff and students live by this famous quote. By consistently being reminded of “POUNDING THE ROCK” daily they know that every time they touch our rock they are one step closer to splitting their obstacle. They have realized that when they avoid their “ROCK”, they are delaying their high school diploma and their ultimate goal in life.

This simple motto has contributed to Austin Can’s rise to one of the best schools to attend in Austin Texas.

At Austin Can we believe that reading and higher order thinking is the pathway to success for our students. We believe the key to our success lies in these two processes and we focus our student’s entire learning on two elements that no other schools focus on. Marquez Reading and FIE are our two blueprints that we stress.

Our increasing popularity has shown in our increased enrolment and 95 percent attendance over the past five years. With the increasing of these two critical factors means the increasing achievement levels that our students have displayed. The rapid rise in all categories have increased our number of graduates dramatically. We have gone from 96 total graduates in 2011 to an astonishing 200 for the current school year!

By choosing Austin Can Academy High School you are selecting a school that is committed to ensuring your youngster meets their full potential. I invite you to explore our website and find out more about what we have to offer.

Sincerely,
Frank Oakes
Principal, Austin Can Academy
