APIE provides college and career readiness support through individualized academic and mentoring programs to prepare students for success.

Unsere Geschichte

Austin Partners in Education ist eine gemeinnützige Organisation, die sich der Verbesserung der College- und Karrierebereitschaft durch studentenzentrierte Nachhilfe- und Mentoringprogramme widmet.

APIE was originally created in 1983 as Adopt-A-School by the Austin Independent School District and the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce before becoming Austin Partners in Education, an independent 501(c)(3) in 2004. We work in partnership with Austin ISD to reinvent the urban-school experience and build a talent pipeline of local students to grow the regional economy. Since our founding, we have trained and placed nearly 17,000 tutors and mentors, who have supported over 37,000 Austin ISD students.

Our academic support and mentoring programs increase access to higher education. We utilize best practice learning models with proven results that have received recognition from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and have been cited as an example of Better Use of Community Resources by the U.S. Department of Education. We were also honored by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.

APIE’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement 

Austin Partners in Education is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion to ensure that as an antiracist organization we are moving our mission forward in an equitable way. We are continuously reminded of the deep inequities that persist in our society and we recognize that we must educate ourselves and critically examine our programs to be able to best serve our students. We have partnered with The Inclusion Practice, Strength Perspective, and Austin ISD to engage in this important work in a sustainable way. Our goal through these efforts is to support more positive and equitable outcomes in the workplace and for our students.

APIE’s Guiding Principles

  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: We welcome, embrace and support all staff, students, volunteers and partners to create a culture where everyone feels included and valued for their unique strengths, abilities, and life experiences. 
  • Positive Influence: Our work, programs and resources create a positive influence for our students, their schools and the community that reaches beyond academic improvement; building confidence to improve social and emotional well-being. 
  • Collaborative Engagement: We gather input from stakeholders to ensure we are making the best decisions.
