Welcome to the Alamo Colleges High School Programs web site. Here you will find information on program opportunities for high school students throughout our Alamo Colleges system. To the right, you will find our High School Programs team contact information at each of our colleges.

What are High School Programs?

High school programs include those that allow high school students to take high school courses concurrent with college level courses.  Specific courses have been identified as having both the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and the Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) and are thereby aligned and able to be taught by the same qualified instructor that meets the requirements for both the high school and the college course.

In order to participate, high school students from public, charter, private and those being home schooled, must meet the minimum requirements for each course. This may entail meeting assessment scores on the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSI), ACT or on End of Course Exams from English II or Algebra I. For more details course requirements, please contact your respective College High School Programs Contact listed on the right of this page.

High School Programs allow students to advance their post secondary journey, saving them time and money by taking college level courses while in high school.

Alamo Colleges offers dual credit opportunities to high school students in different formats.

Dual Credit Courses:  courses offered to high school students at traditional high schools by high school teachers meeting adjunct faculty requirements or college instructors. Each course allows students to earn both college credit hours concurrent with specifically identified high school courses.

Early College High School: this educational model can either be located within a traditional high school as a comprehensive high school or as a standalone school or on a college campus.  An Early College High School provides students with up to 60 college credit hours and substantial support to guide students into an Associate of Arts degree, an Associate of Science degree or an Associate of Applied Science degree. Each of these degrees are connected to a degree plan that maps out the detailed coursework.  At present, the Alamo Colleges is proud to partner with multiple San Antonio regional school districts on 11 Early College High Schools. For more information on each of our Early College High Schools, please click on the left navigation bar on Early College High Schools.

Alamo Academies:  This nationally recognized program offers students targeted workforce focused Level 1 certificate opportunities with paid internships.  The Alamo Academies maintain partnerships with major businesses in the San Antonio region including Toyota, HEB, Port of San Antonio, Methodist Health Care System and Boeing, to name a few.  The Academies address the region’s lack of a high-tech, high-skilled labor force by developing a pipeline of skilled technicians to staff new jobs and replace an aging workforce in:

  • Aerospace
  • Information Technology (IT)

The Academies provide a college pathway for high school juniors and seniors to attain industry and academic certificates that lead to high-wage jobs or to further higher education while addressing critical workforce industry needs.
