Austin OneHeart Upper School (11-18 yrs)

Andrew Fisher is Associate Director of Sansori’s Austin OneHeart Upper School. Andrew’s two passions are education and storytelling, and they have taken him from Houston to NYC to Los Angeles to Austin. For over a decade, he’s been immersed in teaching, filmmaking, and acting. Prior to moving to Austin, he taught at one of the top schools in California. Andrew has experience teaching a wide range of academic and performing arts subjects, including writing, science, history, math, filmmaking, theater, swimming, and lifeguarding, to students of all ages. He acted, directed, and produced an independent film that has been featured in several film festivals.

When Andrew is not working on screenplays or at Austin OneHeart School, you can find him cruising around town on his bicycle or taking a dip at Barton Springs.

 

OVERVIEW


OPENING RETREAT
In the peaceful outskirts of Austin, you will gain an overview of your OneHeart journey, examining shared values and aspirations. Here you will meet your peers and mentors, laying the foundation for your personal and collective transformation.

INTEGRATED LEARNING
Most people, even at this time in history, continue to learn about the world in a disconnected fashion. Each discipline has its turf, and students attend separate classes for each subject.
Not at OneHeart. We find that “Learning By Doing” is a natural and stress-free way to explore the world, which helps you retain knowledge longer and use it more successfully. In the OneHeart process, you will approach tasks from multiple points of view and use a range of disciplines to solve problems. You will discover not just facts that explain the world, but also the intricate balance achieved in productive relationships.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
During your time at the Austin OneHeart School, you will refine your leadership abilities and acquire tools to connect with yourself and others. You and your peers will run a small-scale social enterprise, honing your business skills while you also make positive contributions to this planet and its people.
Whatever your situation or title, OneHeart School prepares you to share your gifts and lead.

BEYOND ONEHEART
As a graduate of the Austin OneHeart School, you will discover a new kind of clarity and purpose in life, combining creativity, personal empowerment, and a sense of social responsibility. You will also join a global network of OneHeart alumni/ae, strengthening your connections through retreats, college- and career workshops, and online events.
