About Us

Mission & History

Established in 1990, The Association of Texas Leaders for Education (ATLE) is the collaborative voice of higher education finance and service providers, whose overarching objective is to empower Texas students to pursue and succeed in postsecondary education. Our members represent the geographic and cultural diversity of the Texas landscape and we are committed to higher education outreach, financial literacy, and the effective delivery and servicing of education loans to students and families in Texas.

ATLE provides financial aid education and resources to the communities we serve through customized presentations, individual member efforts and financial contributions. Our signature Kindergarten2College initiative fuels the awareness and excitement of going to college for elementary school students. Contact us for more information on ATLE’s outreach programs.

ATLE is a non-profit 501c(3) organization.

Our mission is simple. We want to make our community a better place through education and the enlisting of our citizens to bring services to those in need. We accomplish our mission through our core values.

We have been a vital part of our community for a number of years. We were founded to serve a growing segment of our community in need of inaccessible services. We have continued to grow with the help of our donors and volunteers that make our mission possible. Through all these years our purpose still remains the same: bring services to those in need.
