The City of Converse is home to three public schools districts and private K-12 schools: Judson Independent School District (JISD), NorthEast ISD, and IDEA Public Schools and two private schools: Converse Christian School and St. Monica’s Catholic School.
JISD and NEISD participate with The AlamoPROMISE, a program that makes college more accessible to graduating seniors by providing the support necessary to earn a certificate or associate’s degree at one of the five Alamo Colleges: Northeast Lakeview College, Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, San Antonio College, and St. Philips College. Programs at these colleges directly relate to regional employers and industry sectors.
The AlamoPROMISE program ensures that tuition and fees at any of the Alamo Colleges are covered for students who graduate from participating high schools. As last-dollar funding, AlamoPROMISE covers the gap between financial aid and the cost of tuition for up to three years. 100% of tuition and mandatory fees will be covered. Household income does not disqualify students.
Converse as part of the greater San Antonio region is home to more than 160,000 students across its 31 post-secondary educational facilities including University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M University-San Antonio, and the Alamo Community College District’s five colleges, including recently accredited Northeast Lakeview College.
