“For 50 years, Chinquapin has provided a rigorous college-preparatory education to highly motivated but economically underserved youth in the greater Houston area.  More than just a school, Chinquapin is a community that not only prepares its students for success in college and beyond but instills in them the values of good citizenship and servant leadership.  Our stellar alumni are a testament to the value of Chinquapin’s mission.”

– Christie Cardon

“After hearing about Chinquapin Prep from a neighbor and after visiting the campus, I was hooked on the school. The dedication and enthusiasm from the faculty and students are contagious.  Furthermore, the results speak for themselves, 100% graduation from high school and 86% graduation rate from college.  I am proud to be associated with such a wonderful organization.”

– James Lewis

“For the past ten years, I’ve had the privilege of serving on the board with an amazing group of Chinquapin supporters. As a former student, I truly believe in Chinquapin’s ability to transform students and their families.  The school continues to grow and the students continue to succeed despite real life challenges. What goes on here works!”

– Guadalupe Navarro, Jr., Class of 1997
