Empowering Students for Future Success

Preparing students for the world beyond high school is critical to the economic future of our nation. In the state of Texas, historically underserved students comprise the majority of our total student population. To close opportunity gaps and equalize access to high-quality education, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) created the Texas College and Career Readiness School Models (CCRSM) Network. This network, led by the TEA, brings together proven models under a single umbrella of support. Each model offers a unique pathway to postsecondary education while ensuring all students have the opportunity to achieve their highest potential.


Approximately 430 campuses in Texas are implementing one or more of the CCRSM models or are in the planning phase and expecting to serve students in the upcoming school year. This partnership by 165 school districts across Texas bridges secondary campuses with over 60 community colleges/districts and universities. Through these models, and with technical assistance provided by Educate Texas, CCRSM campuses provide holistic, rigorous programming to help students develop college and career skills, earn dual college credit and become top candidates for recruitment in high-demand fields.
