Northeast Austin Communities For Educational Readiness

Improving educational outcomes for our children

NACER is a community partnership  that was formed from a grant-funded collaboration between the Texas Education Agency and the Austin Independent School District. We are a “family of schools” that supports students’ literacy and basic needs using the Northeast Early College High School as the backbone for our work. Our mission is to ensure every student graduates empowered to recognize their opportunities, realize their potential, and become responsible contributing members of their community.

NACER supports the coordination of academic, social, and health services through partnerships among our elementary and secondary schools, our District, and community-based organizations.
