Our Impact

SAEP students have earned 25,000 degrees


Originally founded by community leaders in an effort to bridge the gap between graduating high school, college, and career, the San Antonio Education Partnership has been a pillar of our community since 1989. SAEP provides students, no matter their place in life, the opportunity to access higher education through our programs: cafécollege, Road to Success, SAEP Scholarship, and Upgrade.
