Our History


Dallas Can Academy begins as a program of nonprofit Freedom Ministries to provide remedial education to youth in the juvenile justice system


Services broaden to welcome youth who dropped out of high school


The school is incorporated as Texans Can Academies


Texans Can receives a formal state charter to offer dropout-recovery services


4,000 students served statewide at 13 campuses

A big problem needs a big solution.

Across the five communities we serve—Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio—about 5,000 students drop out of high school each year. 

That’s been the story for more than 10 years. 

Each one of those students has a story; more important, each has a future.

Their future is why we exist.

To date, more than 26,000 people are Texans Can graduates.
