Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and educational place for young children and to partner with and support families.

ACE Programs

The Texans Can ACE program strives to improve statewide and local outcomes in several areas of student performance.  Each outcome is measured differently, with a different collection and reporting process.  Local evaluations are conducted to determine relevant measurements for each program.

Financial Aid

There are 3 main forms of financial aid: Grants, Scholarships, and Loans Grants and Scholarships are often called “gift aid” because they are free money—financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid. Grants are often need-based, while scholarships are usually merit-based. Grants and scholarships can come from the federal government, your state government, your college or career school, or a private or nonprofit organization.

Certifications

Certification is the process of earning a certificate, or a document that demonstrates you have a level of knowledge and skills required for a particular job. You can earn a certificate by taking classes that teach knowledge and job skills needed for a job in a specific field. For example, if you want to earn a certificate in welding technology, you will need to take classes such as “Introduction to Welding” and “Blueprint Reading for Welders.”

Each certification has its own requirements. Some certifications can be earned after only one semester of classes. Others can take up to two years to earn. Community colleges offer a variety of different certification programs, that can take anywhere from 1 semester to 2 years to complete.

Military

The military, also known as the U.S. Armed Forces, exists to defend the U.S. against all enemies and to provide combat capabilities anywhere in the world in support of U.S. security objectives.

It is made up of five service branches: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. Each branch has a unique mission within the overall mission of U.S. security and peace.
