School for the Driven

Driven Middle School: Unlocking Learning Potential

Austin School for the Driven exists to awaken and encourage project based obsession in students. Here we blur the line between family, community and school. Obsessive students learn to collaborate with other students and community members, and in doing so, they develop social skills too. Interesting, inspiring adults frequently visit the school and work adjacent to our students, side by side. 

Driven is public benefit corporation serving 5th students age 9-13 years old. Driven is based inside a 3,000ft² Makerspace attached to a private commercial kitchen. Students cook real food to feed themselves and others, as well as understand the metallurgy behind the fork and knife they make in the forge. Geography, literature, art, coding, philosophy, astronomy and two hour STEAM blocks. Multi-year long term projects that are truly potential realized. 

Driven provides unique environment of experiential learning, the hacker mindset, and outdoor education that is curated by community. Varat Enterprises is happy to support the Austin School for the Driven + it's students, events, and programs!
