Planning and Search Tools

  • The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity.

  • Community College Review provides detailed profiles of community colleges across the USA. You can compare colleges by state and learn more about how community colleges work.

  • It's the place to discover new colleges and scholarships, compare your top choices and make the decisions that give you peace of mind.

Arm yourself by reading up on how much college really costs, the pros and cons of working during your four years there, the financial risks that may arise while in school, and much more.

  • BLMHTX
    BLMHTX

    In the wake of recent violence and brutality against black lives that continues to sweep the nation, BLMHTX formed as a locally-based, and Houston-founded, activist organization and collective of researchers, activists, artists, religious leaders, and community organizers that aims to educate, empower, and build coalition in order to address issues that impact black lives in the city of Houston.

    Our mission is to spark critical visions of a world where black lives matter while working toward making this a concrete reality here in Houston. In all of our work, we emphasize three core tenets: creative imagination, critical dialogue, and coalition building--all in the pursuit of intersectional social justice.

    BLMHTX employs an Ella Baker model of community organizing, a model which brings people together for sustained and coordinated strategic action for social justice. As such, in addition to direct actions and political engagement with local civic leaders, we are committed to building community through programming, trainings, community meetings, and conferences that combine critical dialogue and the arts in ways that creatively highlight and confront issues of racism and social injustice. These community building efforts are central to our aim of curating spaces for disparate members of the Houston community to collaborate, come together, and think about how to contribute to the valuing of black lives through their own areas of interest and influence.
