Welcome to Orenda Education

  • Orenda Education is a private organization managing a network of public charter schools in Central Texas and educational support services for children and youth, ages 5-18.   We operate college preparatory schools, career and technical schools and residential facility schools.  All of our schools are guided by "next generation" instructional methods.  Our "Circle of Courage" philosophy (why we do what we do) and methods (how we do what we do) are what set us apart from traditional school systems.


  • On Monday, Sept. 18, The Belton Chamber of Commerce "Ambassadors" held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at one of Orenda's newest K-5 charter schools in Belton, Texas.  Ken Wiseman, the school principal welcomed the visitors and guided them on a tour of the school which supports the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the arts and Math) curriculum.
