  • Currently, TxEA serves its students on two campuses in east Austin; however, there is no space to expand to meet the population demand
  • TxEA has a waiting list for students and needs more capacity
  • Research shows that African American Population, including TxEA students, is moving East
  • Education is the foundation of Social Justice. Like Historically Black Universities (HBCUs) TxEA can be a pipeline for future industry, and a model for Black youth achievement
