By 2017, IDEA will operate 60 schools in three regions educating tens of thousands of students on their road to and through college.
When we achieve this goal, our schools will prepare the majority of low-income college graduates in the Rio Grande Valley.
By expanding our impact, we will increase the number of low-income college graduates by 50%. This success will change lives, families, and communities across Texas.
Road to College
From Pre-Kinder to 12th grade, IDEA Public Schools is focused on sending 100% of our kids to college.
