With Thanksgiving around the corner, we’re mindful of all of the things we’re grateful for. In particular, we are thankful for you, Texas educators. As of last week, more than 10,000 of you have registered for the TexasOnCourse Academy, our free online resource offering premium content for educators. Thanks to you, countless students across the state are equipped to plan for success after high school.

Let’s keep the momentum going! Will you share the Texas OnCourse Academy with your colleagues? With the Academy, you and your colleagues are:

Prepared to advise any student on any postsecondary decision.

The Texas OnCourse Academy provides comprehensive professional learning on college and career advising for all educators – counselors, advisers, teachers, coaches, and anyone else who supports students in their plans after high school.

Our competency-based modules include topics including FAFSA, NCAA Eligibility, Advising Highly Mobile Students, and Transition Services for Students with Disabilities. Become the expert you always wanted to be!
