Education and Training Centers

The Education and Training Centers were established by the Alamo Colleges to serve as a link between San Antonio and the Alamo Colleges - Northeast Lakeview College, Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, St. Philip's College, and San Antonio College. Our mission is to ensure the delivery of services in such a way that our community's needs are met in the most efficient and effective manner by creating partnerships with local churches, community-based organizations, and Independent School Districts.
