Texas Schools Information
Education beyond high school should be attainable for every student who actively desires it and is academically qualified.
College graduates, on the average, earn about half again as much money during their lifetimes as people who have completed only a high school education. This does not mean, however, that a college education is the be-all and end-all for each and every high school student. Many vocational and technical careers do not require four years of college education and yet pay handsome wages.
This section provides helpful resources for the college-bound and is provided free to students by the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation. A continuing aim of the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation, in following the founders’ mandate, “...assisting young men and women... wishing to attend colleges and universities to complete their education and obtain degrees...” is to make the transition from high school to college both attractive and attainable.
