The Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Initiative provides a foundational approach to empower teachers, inspire students, and advance the studies in these four fields. The public-private initiative of academies, professional development centers and networks is designed to improve instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects at secondary schools.

Texas is home to 121 T-STEM Schools, including 97 T-STEM Academies and 24 blended Early College High School/T-STEM Academies serving more than 84,000 students across the state. Click here for the full list of schools.


• Increase the number of students entering postsecondary studies and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics
• Facilitate the promotion of quality school leadership that supports school redesign efforts, quality teacher recruitment and improved teacher preparation
• Align the long-term educational and economic development needs for local, regional and state needs

We hope you find this interactive T-STEM Academy Design Blueprint useful as a tool to reflect on your Academy’s success or as you plan to embark on initiating the T-STEM Initiative on your campus.
