Overton Early College Prep: ACADEMICS
Volma Overton Early College Prep is a place where talented educators spend each day nurturing and motivating scholars to prepare their road to further education and to insure success in all areas of life. Excellent education is modeled by staff and achieved from PreK all the way through the 5th grade. Overton's professional teams, motivated and hard working scholars and their beautiful families are what make this classroom culture shine throughout our community.
When visiting Overton's campus there is a beautiful mosaic of culture and diversity. This is an elementary campus that nurtures the distinct cultures and traditions of our special community. Overton is a bilingual environment allowing scholars to excell in two or more languages. Our assemblies and activities support the traditions and holidays of many cultures. This is a unique and special environment where diversity is embraced and treasured by keeping an overall unified focus on educating scholars to achieve academically while embracing the individuality and beauty of others.
Here at Volma Overton Early College Prep we integrate traditional teaching with modern technology. Scholars are able to learn on computers, chromebooks and tablets while continuing to have a balance of reading and writing apart from technology. Professional educators are well equipped and trained to enrich the teaching experience with different levels of technology in the classroom and during after-school activities.
There are several after school activities and programs. The Boys and Girls Club of Austin along with the City of Austin Parks and Recreation offer after school programming to help scholars and their families. Throughout the year there are other activities/clubs that are presented to scholars to join if desired.
*Tutoring is offered at certian times of the year after school for those scholars who need extra help; the school will contact your scholar if this is an option when available.
Parents are encouraged to make an appointment by contacting the office at Overton to meet our administrators and to learn about the exceptional educational opportunities Volma Overton has to offer. The educational program is aligned with the Early College High School initiative that supports preparation for college level courses beginning in 9th grade.
