In 1898 St. Philip’s College was founded as a sewing school, and today the Alamo Community College District (ACCD) is comprised of five award-winning campuses spread across San Antonio. Throughout its history, ACCD has received many awards, and in 2018 they were awarded The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
