WHO WE ARE
Texans Can! Academy is a Tax Exempt IRS Approved 501(C) 3 educational organization. We are a public charter school that has 11 campuses throughout Texas. We welcome all students ages 14-21 who have struggled in a traditional high school setting for a number of reasons. We enroll every student who wants to attend our schools and we register students throughout the school year. We work with each individual to understand what circumstances surround their struggle. We develop a personal plan for each student to complete their education and earn their high school diploma. We nurture every student with personal attention from teachers, advisors, and administrators. We teach them reading and thinking skills that promote productivity and independence. We assist them with planning for life after graduation – whether it’s attending college, starting a job, or enlisting in the military.
We graduated 1488 high school students across Texas in 2013.

My experience with your organization was much better than indicated by the limited selection of responses on this survey. All, including towing agent, were excellent. I will highly recommend and donate again if situation and ability arises. Thank you for the good work you do and God Bless.- S. Grizzle
