Congrats class of 2024!

Your hard work has paid dividends-you're ready to take on the world empowered to succeed. We are all so proud of what you've accomplished.

Out of our almost 11,000 graduates, almost 800 were AlamoPROMISE scholars-area high school seniors who completed a certificate or degree program without the financial burden of tuition and other fees.

In addition to AlamoPROMISE, programs such as AlamoBOOKS+ as well as our advocacy centers provided students with the support services they need to succeed. The advantage of an education from the Alamo Colleges is quantifiable. Graduates will benefit from a $9,400 increase in average earnings per year when compared to those whose highest level of educational attainment is a high school diploma. Additionally, past and present students of the Alamo Colleges contribute to the economy of the region by generating $2 billion in added income for the Greater San Antonio area.

We congratulate this year's graduates of the Alamo Colleges and wish them all the best as they pursue even greater achievements in their lives. We will look back on their efforts as a source of inspiration and pride as we welcome and continue to encourage new students to pursue their dreams at the Alamo Colleges.


A District for the Community

There is no Alamo Colleges District without the community of individuals making this city great-our relatives, friends, and neighbors who we are exceptionally proud to serve.

We are the largest provider of higher education and workforce training in the seventh largest city in the United States.

Our five colleges, education and training centers, and early-college high schools are cornerstones to our ongoing goals of educating a populace of strivers, doers, and dreamers who work to better themselves and each other every day.

No matter where you are in San Antonio, you're within a twenty-minute drive from a district campus or center.

Whether you're seeking a certificate, workforce training, an associate degree, credits to transfer to four-year institutions, or even a bachelor's, the district has what you need to develop your knowledge, build your career, and better your life.

Together, we can empower our diverse communities for success and fulfill our moonshot of ending poverty through education and training.

"From the first day I came to the Alamo Colleges, everyone was willing to help or find someone who could. Everyone has a sincere, genuine energy of wanting better for the person next to them. There are people here who go the extra mile—really above and beyond—and have gotten me where I am. They had huge impacts on my life. What I can do is help people who are in the same position I was in."

“The scope you see as a student trustee is pretty grand. I don’t think that’s something that I had expected. The scope is unreal and it makes me want to work and do bigger things. … There’s something about education that inspires that sense of community involvement. I always had that sense of duty, especially from my time in the military, but I think my time here at the Alamo Colleges, serving as student trustee, really honed in on that sense of duty toward giving back to the community.”

“Being a military spouse, I would like to work at a government healthcare facility if we have to move. For most government positions, you need a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, so having this degree will open up more opportunities for better positions in healthcare.”
