Following the purchase of 28 acres located off Blue Ridge Drive, Harmony Public Schools is expected to begin construction on an elementary school campus in April.

The elementary school is scheduled to open for the 2024-25 school year, followed by a middle and high school two years later, said Tracie Seed, Harmony’s Central Texas communications and marketing director.

This expansion comes as the charter school has seen applications double from 5,000 to 10,000 between the 2019-20 and 2022-23 school years, Seed said. So far, Harmony has had more than 4,000 applications for the 2023-24 year, with a majority of these coming from North Austin, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Leander and Round Rock, she said.
