I am proud to champion A&M-San Antonio’s Achiever Promise because it provides our 3,000 early college students a local opportunity to continue their education tuition-free. Like A&M-San Antonio, many of our students enrolled in our 22 early college high schools are first-generation college graduates. Programs like the Achiever Promise are critical for bridging the equity gap and creating a thriving and inclusive community.
Dr. Mike Flores, Chancellor
We are so grateful for Achiever Promise! This initiative will empower our graduates to access higher levels of education that have often been financially inaccessible to them. This Promise incentivizes and validates the aspirations of our students, especially at our early college high schools, and Travis Early College High School was honored to welcome Texas A&M University-San Antonio to launch this initiative.

I've grown up at East Central and spent my entire life and career here, so I've seen generations of graduates who have continued their education in college. I've seen far too many take on debt, and in the worst cases, graduate with a degree that has limited value in today's constantly evolving economy, leaving them with debt that is nearly impossible to repay. We're fortunate to have a fantastic university right here in our own backyard that is offering a tremendous opportunity with the Achiever Promise. These mutually beneficial partnerships establish a pipeline from K-12 to higher education and back into South Bexar County communities, producing college graduates that are highly-skilled and motivated to strengthen our community."
