The Association of Texas Leaders for Education, commonly known as ATLE, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to creating a college bound culture by effectively bringing excitement, awareness and understanding to students and families - so that the obstacles of successfully planning and paying for postsecondary education are removed.



Welcome to ATLE!

With feet on the ground, ATLE's members and supporters provide hands-on insight, information, presentations and collateral to energize a college going culture in the landscape of diverse Texas neighborhoods and communities. With your volunteerism and support, we'll help ensure that every young Texan has the opportunity to dream, discover higher education opportunities beyond high school, and succeed in their ability to finance that education.

TASFAA Initiatives

Training and Education
Training and Education are provided to TASFAA members, and other constituencies who share our goal of facilitating access to postsecondary education to all students. The Association’s commitment to providing quality training opportunities includes ensuring that members have access to programs offered by our national association.

Technology has afforded the Association the ability to provide its membership with timely and critical communication to help them conduct their business.

Outreach and Early Awareness
Outreach and Early Awareness encompasses a broad range of initiatives and projects. Our members work in collaboration with other associations and organizations to provide mentors and informational services to schools identified as having large numbers of at risk students.

TASFAA has dedicated members who work along side our state and national representatives and senators and their staff to ensure that TASFAA provides accurate and relevant information to federal and state policy makers.

Partnerships provide a viable avenue for TASFAA to contribute to many valuable initiatives that serve our constituencies. Collaborative efforts with many other associations and organizations provide a uniform front on matters of student lending and access to higher education.
