Texas College and Career Readiness School Models (CCRSM)


Preparing Texas Students for a Successful Future

The Texas College and Career Readiness School Models (CCRSM) are open enrollment programs that blend high school and college coursework to help historically underserved and at-risk students develop technical skills, earn college credentials and degrees, and pursue in-demand career paths.




CCRSM Network

The statewide CCRSM network is comprised of 371 campuses implementing one or more of the following CCRSM programs: Early College High Schools (ECHS), Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (T-STEM),  Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH). and Industry Cluster Innovative Academies (ICIA).

For more information regarding the network, see recent CCRSM presentations from the 2019 Annual Leadership Summit.

2019-2020 P-TECH and New Tech Campuses Who Qualify for HB 3 Incentive Funding

Texas is home to 63 designated Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools who qualify for HB 3 incentive funding in 2019-2020.

Commitment to Continuous Improvement

Through the CCRSM network TEA is creating synergies to drive continuous improvement by consolidating these individual models under one umbrella of support. This integrated approach to technical assistance creates efficiencies, spurs cross-model learning, and provides customized support to schools and districts as they implement these models to increase the college and career readiness of their students.
