Preparing TEXAS Students for a Successful future

The Texas College and Career Readiness School Models (CCR School Models) Network is a network of Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (T-STEM) Academies, Early College High Schools (ECHS), Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH) and Industry Cluster Innovative Academies (ICIA). These initiatives, led by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), help historically underserved students develop technical skills, earn dual college credit, and pursue in-demand career paths. Through this network, the TEA is creating synergies by consolidating these individual models under one umbrella of support. This integrated approach to technical assistance creates efficiencies, spurs cross-model learning, and provides customized support to schools and districts as they implement these models to increase the college and career readiness of their students.
