Students in GenTX

At the Center for P-16 Initiatives, we believe:

  • College success is possible for all students

  • Children who are economically disadvantaged can be successful if they have the necessary community-based supports

  • The roots for educational success begin with high-quality pre-kindergarten experiences

  • Making college accessible depends on the transparency of the college application process
