What is Achieve Texas?
  • Achieve Texas is designed to help students (and their parents) make wise education choices
  • It is based on the belief that the curricula of the 21st century should combine rigorous academics with relevant career education
  • When schools integrate academic and technical education, students can see the “usefulness” of what they are learning
  • The system also facilitates the transition from secondary to postsecondary opportunities
