By 2022, IDEA will operate 173 schools in five regions educating a hundred thousand students on their road to and through college.

This will put us on track to become the largest producer of low-income college graduates in the RGV. This phase of growth will increase the number of low-income graduates in the RGV and Central Texas by 50%, fundamentally changing the economic landscape for our communities.
