San Antonio Education Partnership
To create college opportunities, access, and success for our community.
For more than 25 years, SAEP has been at the center of a successful cross-sector collaboration with the primary goal of increasing the educational attainment of San Antonio’s community and improving the city’s future economic vitality. Today SAEP has become a pillar organization in creating a “college-going culture” in San Antonio and providing the key services for students to reach their college and career goals. SAEP is the longest-standing organization offering college advising services directly to San Antonio’s high school students. Because of our experience, SAEP serves as one of the leading college access and success organizations in San Antonio. SAEP fulfills its mission to “create college opportunities, access, and success for our community” through its three programmatic components: • Road to Success – provides direct college access services in 25 San Antonio-area high schools by placing College Access and Success Advisors to serve as adjunct staff at the high schools focused solely on the provision of college and career advising; • cafécollege – San Antonio’s college access and success opportunity center which serves as a one-stop clearinghouse of information, resources, and experts offering free guidance to prepare for, apply to, enroll in, and complete college; and, • cafécollege scholarship program – utilized as an incentive and reward to motivate at-risk, low-income students to pursue higher education.
