Program Description

We believe education has the power to transform. And not just individuals. With each student that takes an AP class, scores well on the SAT, or gets into a top-tier university, the bar is raised for everyone. By lifting expectations for the students we serve, the Academic Success Program promotes a college-going culture in communities.

We work with all key players -- including students, parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and college admissions officers to gain higher education access for our students, with a focus on those who are first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented minorities. We work individually with students to identify the best fit as they continue on their path to higher education -- be that an Ivy League school, a public state university, or a local community college. This holistic approach delivers results.

The Academic Success Program (ASP Dallas) is a Texas non-profit college access program that aims to build a college-going culture in DFW high schools. ASP Dallas students have also been awarded the prestigious Gates Millennium Scholarship and Dell Scholarship.

ASP Dallas is an open-enrollment program currently available at twelve DallasISD high schools: Bryan Adams High School, Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy, Conrad High School, Garza Early College High School, Hillcrest High School, Irma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School, Molina High School, J.L. Patton Academic Center, Science and Engineering Magnet at Townview, South Oak Cliff High School, Thomas Jefferson High School, and WT White High School.

The Academic Success Program is a member of both TACAC and NACAC and is proud to be a partner with Commit! in improving educational outcomes for students throughout the Dallas area.
