About the Transformational Leadership Academy

The Transformational Leadership Academy (TLA) program hosted by Texas A&M University-San Antonio is a five-night summer residential experience for 50 current high school sophomores and juniors from under-represented populations attending an ASPIRE Network High School. Through hands-on activities, the TLA program will provide students and their families with the opportunity to experience first-hand collegiate life at A&M-San Antonio. Students will have a chance to sit in on leadership and entrepreneurship classes where they will study real-life scenarios and business practices. The program's culmination will include students delivering a business pitch that local business partners will judge. Overall, the program will provide students and their families with exposure to a collegiate environment and increase their college knowledge as they prepare to begin their college application process.
