Donate to Educate Texas
A leading catalyst for progress, Educate Texas, a public-private initiative of Communities Foundation of Texas, is an innovative alliance of public and private groups that share a common goal: strengthening the public education system so that every Texas student is prepared for success in school, in the workforce, and in life. Educate Texas’ original goal was to serve 30,000 low income, minority students through the creation of 75 early college high schools and T-STEM Academies. As of 2015, we have far exceeded this goal and our public-private college-ready network of schools includes 135 early colleges and T-STEM Academies serving over 63,000 students – 75 percent of whom are economically disadvantaged. These programs are changing the lives of students across Texas. Most notably, our early college and T-STEM students graduate high school at higher rates, complete more advanced coursework, and enroll and persist in college at higher rates than the state average.
