Palo Alto College opened in 1985 as the only higher education institution on the Southside of San Antonio. We are leading the way in creating partnerships with other educational entities, businesses, and community organizations to bring success to the Southside. We have adopted a new slogan: Dedicated To Your Success. It is designed to create synergy as we concentrate on the success of our students, the success of our employees and the success of our community.
We are excited that we have a new President, Dr. R. Michael “Mike” Flores, who is listening to the students and employees and is meeting with community leaders to determine how Palo Alto College can best serve its purpose.
We invite you to visit our website to learn more about us. Palo Alto College is one of the five Alamo Colleges and offers Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Arts in Teaching, and Associate of Applied Science degrees. We also offer short-term certificates and have non-credit classes that provide job-entry and licensure opportunities in a variety of career fields.
