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.


The Education & Training Centers are committed to helping students by providing:

  • Free GED classes
  • Computer skills workshops
  • Enrollment processing assistance with admissions, financial aid, and assessment of basic skills to prospective and/or returning adult students who are interested in attending any of the Alamo Colleges.
  • We are also an avenue for community residents interested in acquiring entry-level occupation skills, workforce training or increase technical skills in order to connect to better job opportunities.


  • We are centrally located within your neighborhood. Located in the western, southern, and eastern sectors of San Antonio, the Education and Training Centers provide accessibility to any of the Alamo Colleges.
