Reading Buddies

Austin Village Academy exists to empower young people to imagine and build a better world.

We understand that children’s school experiences are a formative part of their lives. We seek to nurture in children a joyful understanding of themselves as important members of their communities, to empower them to think creatively and critically, and to foster practices that reflect our belief that each person has an important role in protecting the environment and building a positive future. We model and encourage constructive behavior, use positive redirection, and facilitate peaceful conflict resolution.
