Selwyn is a non-sectarian, college-preparatory, independent school serving pre-school through grade 12 students. A member of the National Association of Independent Schools, Selwyn provides the most thoroughly individualized, comprehensive and developmentally appropriate array of student-focused experiences in North Texas. Our students grow into independent thinkers and creative problem solvers who are highly resilient, emotionally intelligent leaders prepared for effective citizenship in a global society.
Our mission is to cultivate global citizens who embrace complex challenges with empathetic and innovative thinking that advances the human condition.
Our vision is to elevate the human experience by encouraging whole child development through high academic standards and age appropriate challenges that foster creative problem-solving, emotional intelligence, and social responsibility from which world leaders emerge.
We know that today’s learners face problems that are complex and constantly changing. 21st century careers are evolving more quickly than in any time in human history. Problem-solving skills, community building, and leadership development are now as important as academics at every stage of a student’s learning development. Selwyn’s mission revolves around this broader set of skills, which is why we offer an experiential, individualized, and student-centered learning environment for all our students that encourages independent thinking and persistent attention to evolving, proven educational practices and philosophies.
