Welcome to Dallas County Parent Promise. We are here to help you take a first step towards a different future through education.  

The Parent Promise is an opportunity for a graduating senior from a participating high school to provide their parent or guardian the gift of a college education.  Parents become eligible if the high school senior completes the Dallas County Promise pledge form by February 8 each year.

Through Parent Promise, parents will receive a scholarship that covers any gap between state and federal financial aid and the cost of classes at any Dallas County Community College. Parents may use this to complete a certificate, or for up to five years for an associate degree.

Promise Parents also will be matched with a Success Coach who will serve as a mentor through to college completion.

Funding for the Parent Promise is provided by the DCCCD Foundation’s LevelUp scholarship. With a focus on in-demand occupations, Parent Promise looks to augment the workforce to help meet the demand of mid-skill occupations in Dallas County.
