Generation TX (pronounced "Generation Texas") is a statewide movement supported by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board that is focused on building a college-going and career-ready culture.

Last year, Generation TX held its first statewide GenTX Day celebrating the achievements of Texas students, especially graduating seniors who are continuing their education beyond high school.
