Texans Can Academies aims to remove any obstacles and fulfill the needs of each one of their high school students in order for them to focus on their education to move on to brighter futures. Many of their students have experienced setbacks in life, including academic struggles and economic pressures, that have pushed them away from school. When they came to Texans Can Academies to finish their education, they did so when the choice was not easy to make. Now, with COVID-19, times are even harder for many students.
Today, December 1, Texans Can Academies is participating in GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world to help students make the choice to return to learn.
Donations to Texans Can Academies will be used toward providing students with resources such as eyeglasses, clothes including uniforms and professional and formal attire, emergency funds, vaccinations, food and access to dental and mental health services along with anything else their students might need to succeed. Donations can be made at texanscan.org.
Professional counseling services are made available to students at all 14 Texans Can Academies campuses to receive completely confidential crisis intervention when they need it. The 24-hours, seven days a week, year-round counseling services are available to students at no cost to them, but made possible by Texans Can Academies’ supporters.
Texans Can Academies provides students with a high quality education, access to resources, and the skills they need, so they can achieve their own economic independence through a pathway of success.
Texans Can Academies are a unique network of 14 dropout prevention and recovery schools located in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. The schools are tuition-free, open enrollment, public high schools of choice serving students who have struggled in a traditional high school setting.
