SAN ANTONIO —
Two San Antonio community colleges ranked among the top five colleges in the state.
Northwest Vista College and Palo Alto College were named No. 1 and No. 3, respectively, on the 2019 Best Colleges in Texas by Niche.com. Northwest Vista ranked sixth in the nation, while Palo Alto placed 38th in the country out of 868 ranked community colleges.
Last year Northwest Vista finished third in Texas and 41st in the country. The ranking is based on United States Department of Education data and reviews from millions of students regarding value, academics, campus life and other factors important to students.
”Congratulations to the faculty, staff and administrators at NVC and PAC for their latest accolade,” said Alamo Colleges District Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. “All of the five colleges across the Alamo Colleges District are increasingly recognized for their excellent performance and the success of their students, and we are fast achieving our goal of becoming the best community college district in the nation."
