College Resources

Academic Success Program (ASP Dallas)

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.  

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. 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.
