Success Stories

I never gave up because of `{`my SAEP Advisor`}`. If I was ever confused I knew I had him to guide me to the next step. If I had been on my own, I am not sure where I would have ended up. Because of him I am a Longhorn!

—SAEP Alumnus-Class of 2013, Robert E. Lee High School


My Advisor was my drive to complete the overwhelming information and steps of the college application process, as she stood by my side every step of the way. Her guidance helped me decide what college plan was for me, and it was her charisma that kept me on track. I highly recommend the Education Partnership for students who need guidance with college and financial aid.”

—SAEP Alumnus-Class of 2013, Douglas MacArthur High School


My Advisor was more of a friend than an Advisor. Without his guidance I would not have thought college was an option for me. He changed my life.

—SAEP Alumnus-Class of 2013, O.W. Holmes High School


It meant something that someone was there to listen to me, and help me. She didn’t count me out. Even with my twin daughters, she kept telling me college was possible.
