Driven by the belief that teachers and students thrive with great leadership, The Holdsworth Center builds stronger leaders for Texas public schools. Founded as a nonprofit in 2017 by H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt, Holdsworth provides world-class leadership development programs and services within districts and at its Campus on Lake Austin, a one-of-a-kind place dedicated to the idea that public education holds worth.

At The Holdsworth Center, we believe public school leaders are nation builders who are helping to shape our collective future and they deserve rigorous professional learning in a world-class setting.

Investing in public education leaders makes a difference. Not just for them, but for the staff, students, families and communities they serve and influence.
