Companies that seek educated workers with advanced skills are quick to recognize that Houston County’s accessibility to quality higher education provides a workforce with a strong work ethic and the skills suitable to their profession.
Texas A&M University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Sam Houston State University are all within an hour’s drive of Houston County. Angelina Community College and Trinity Valley Community College are within a 30-minute drive, and satellite classes are available throughout the county.
Local education has been recognized statewide for academic excellence. This is due, in part, to the low student/teacher ratios, allowing more individual attention for students. It is the goal of Houston County educators to help each student reach their fullest potential.
