APIE provides college and career readiness support through individualized academic and mentoring programs to prepare students for success.
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.
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 the importance of educating ourselves and examining our programs is crucial to being able to best serve our students. To that end, we have partnered with The Inclusion Practice 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.
