School Notes:

As a Historically Black College and as a Hispanic Serving Institution, St. Philip's College strives to be an important force in the community, responsive to the needs of a population rich in its ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic diversity. St. Philip's College seeks to create an environment fostering excellence in academic and technical achievement, while expanding its commitment to opportunity and access. St. Philip's College was founded in 1898 by Bishop James Steptoe Johnston of St. Philip's Episcopal Church of the West Texas Diocese. The school, which opened on March 1, 1898, began as a sewing class for girls with fewer than 20 students in a house located in the area known today as the historic La Villita area in downtown San Antonio. Today, St. Philip's College remains a multi-campus institution of the Alamo Community College District, joining three other colleges San Antonio College, Palo Alto College and Northwest Vista College in meeting the educational needs of San Antonio's growing and diverse community. A Historically Black College and Hispanic Serving Institution with a semester enrollment of over 8,000, St. Philip's is among the oldest and most diverse community colleges in the nation and one of the fastest growing in Texas.
