Ideas are powerful, but they’re also perishable. They need to be defended and passed on to each new generation. For 53 years, TFAS has led the fight in teaching a core set of principles – freedom, individual responsibility and free markets – to rising generations of leaders. We strive to have a profound effect on the lives of our students by passing on the ideas that offer the greatest opportunity for personal fulfillment and human accomplishment.

Today, there are more than 42,000 TFAS alumni, representing more than 140 countries, making the difference in their communities and throughout the world by upholding the values essential to the preservation and success of a free society. Thank you for making the last 53 years possible! We look forward to continuing to change the world with you, one student at a time.
