Texans Can Academies provides the highest quality education for all students, especially those who have struggled in a traditional high school setting, in order to ensure their economic independence.

There are a multitude of ways to be involved with Texans Can Academies, from donating to help students secure their economic independence to volunteering your time and talents to make a difference in the students' lives.

Leading up to each school year, Texans Can Academies hosts its annual Countdown to Class Uniform Drive to raise funds that will benefit students at their 14 campuses across the state of Texas. The open-enrollment public charter high school has campuses located in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. The funds from the drive benefit students and their families by providing brand-new clothes that fit properly to wear as the school's uniform of khaki pants and white collared shirts. A $75 donation provides one pair of pants, two shirts, socks, and a belt for one student. 

Each city — Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Fort Worth — has a Cares for Kids Luncheon each year. The luncheon benefits students who seek a second chance and renewed hope of economic independence through a high school education.
