The Alamo Area Colleges Access & Completion Consortium (AACA&CC) is led by a vision to develop relationships in order to forge academic and career pathways for students. Currently, the consortium consists of 28+ regional partners that include school districts, higher education institutions, community-based organizations, and civic and business leadership within the Alamo Area collaborating to promote greater student success outcomes. Working together year round, consortium members work on three distinct task forces. These task forces include:

  • Pathways – dedicated to creating seamless pathways for students to navigate from high school to college and beyond
  • Common Metrics – to standardize language and data across high schools, colleges, universities, and the workforce
  • Technology/Website - to create an online portal for students, parents, employers, and the community at large, to access all the information they would need throughout these transitions in one intuitive online space

This unique model of collaboration and collective impact strategies builds momentum to address educational and economic needs of our service area. The consortium hosts an annual Fall Summit for service providers to share best practices and models which support student success efforts. Latinos, an integral part of our school and workforce, comprise approximately 65% of the Alamo region population.
