Elon Musk Plans New STEM School in Austin, Texas

Tax records show that recent Texas resident Elon Musk aims to open a new institution in Austin. The unidentified school will focus on STEM courses in primary and secondary education.

The documents state that Elon Musk’s Foundation will donate $100 million and student tuition will fund the institution. The school will serve local students and offer distance learning. Academic curiosity, discipline, independence, and invention are the first entrance criteria for 50 students.

Plans call for the school to become a university and seek accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges, after proving its viability. The petition doesn’t list tuition, but admitted students will receive financial aid. The school is hiring an executive director, experienced teachers, and administrators.
