Postsecondary Pathways is a nonprofit helping Texas secondary students make informed plans about college and career.
Originally, we focused exclusively on providing college tours enhanced with workshops on the College Selection & Application Process (CSAP).
In 2018, however, our services expanded to publishing interactive guidebooks about postsecondary options, as well as secondary opportunities that help prepare students to pursue their passions.
24 STUDENTS + 2 VANS + 3 DAYS = 9 CAMPUS VISITS
Our history began in October 2008 with a Central TX College Tour for students from the Houston area. Over the course of three days, 24 high school seniors visited nine universities -- Texas A&M, UT Austin, Baylor, Texas State, St. Edward's, St. Mary's, UTSA, Trinity, and Southwestern. The trip included four comprehensive campus visits, three brief tours, and two driving tours.
Through word-of-mouth, demand for our tours has accelerated. The leased vans have been replaced with luxury motorcoaches. Now, tours depart from cities and towns across Texas. We offer open-enrollment (students may register individually without sponsorship of their school), as well as custom or charter tours for school groups and community organizations.
WRITING THE BOOK ON TX COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
In 2016, we decided to create an internal handbook with the various daily campus tour schedules and preview dates to facilitate planning each semester’s tours.
Realizing that all TX students and families could benefit from our research, we started a year-long endeavor to literally write the book on TX Colleges & Universities.
In the center of each profile page is the daily tour schedule for the campus with the address and directions to Visitor Parking — not the official address of the university.
Now, we are very excited to share our inaugural TX College Guidebook with complete interactive profiles of the state’s 73 four-year colleges and universities. Click here for more information about our TX College Guidebook series.
In 2019, we are also rolling out our Post2 Connections initiative to help link schools and students with outstanding student activities and competitions.
As educators, we understand the challenges that prevent students across the state from have equal access to life-changing programs. Post2 is eager to provide schools with a turn-key approach to providing exemplary programs for their students by helping reduce the administrative time and funding required to begin such partnerships.
More information about our pilot partnerships will be posted in January 2019.
As a nonprofit, we welcome volunteers from across the state to join us in connecting students to their future! Please contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
