OnRamps was founded in 2011 to increase the number and diversity of students who engage in learning experiences aligned with the expectations of leading universities. To do this, OnRamps established and applies a four-pillar design—to meet college standards, implement innovative pedagogy, facilitate a technology-enhanced education, and diffuse aligned college experiences.
OnRamps facilitates a network of Texas students, teachers, districts, community partners and higher education institutions, offering:
- high-quality courses for students to engage in authentic college experiences;
- ongoing professional development and virtual supports for teachers to improve the quality of instruction; and
- strategic partnerships that extend the reach and yield the greatest impact on postsecondary attainment, persistence and completion.
