How Our Process Works
Alamo Academies operates under a demand-based education model. We set target enrollment levels, which are based on projected workforce demand.
A collaborative team identifies the curriculum pathway, recruitment, matriculation, and support systems via dual credit.
Students are bussed to the Alamo College campus’ on a daily basis so they can engage in 2.5 hours of lab and classroom. You are immersed into the college experience earning 30+ college credits at no cost and are able to earn a high school diploma, industry certifications*, and college certificates*.
You can earn an average of $3,000 by participating in an industry internship. Upon graduation, you may work in a high-demand STEM field or continue onto higher education.
