It is a PRIME day to read at Texans Can Academies. Through the schools’ reading process, known by staff and students as “Marquez Reading”, Texans Can Academies focuses on helping students improve reading accuracy, become more comfortable with reading, think through text-based material and write in response to reading. President and CEO of Texans Can Academies, Mr. Richard Marquez, developed the research-based process, and it is integrated into the classroom instruction of all Texans Can Academies campuses every day.
Marquez Reading was designed to address the most tested skills in all standardized exams, improve low reading scores and support special education needs to help all students succeed.
Texans Can Academies are a unique network of 14 charter schools located in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. The schools are tuition-free, open enrollment, public high schools of choice serving students who have struggled in a traditional high school setting.
