The Northeast Partnership member cities make up the area of Northeast San Antonio known as the Metrocom. Over 155,000 residents have chosen to live in the Metrocom area because of the diverse amenities and benefits available, including affordable housing, excellent schools and an abundance of parks and recreational facilities. Our cities are rich in shopping areas, restaurants, medical services, worship centers and businesses of all kinds, which offer unlimited options to residents of every age and lifestyle.
A prime location along the Northeast San Antonio I-35 Corridor is another reason both people and businesses are drawn to the Metrocom. Major freeways such as I-35, Loop 1604, I-10 and Loop 410 are all only minutes away, making travel to Austin, San Antonio and the surrounding areas quick and convenient.
Uniting all the Metrocom cities together is Randolph Air Force Base - a stable presence in this area since its opening in 1930. With over 17,000 personnel on base, the Metrocom is proud to have our military men and women call us home. To show support for local service members and their families, our cities host numerous events and activities each year in their honor, and city governments and organizations are always working on ways to strengthen the military/civilian partnership.
The exponential growth the Metrocom has experienced in the last few years speaks volumes to the quality of life available here. Families continue to move to the area, and as our neighborhoods grow, the demand for additional businesses and services grow right along with them. So come join our community and see why people love calling the Metrocom home!
Several Independent School Districts serve students in the Northeast Partnership area, each of which is recognized for academic excellence. These Districts include:
The Metrocom is also home to two parochial schools: Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Grade School in Selma which has earned the coveted Blue Ribbon Award for academic excellence and Saint John Paul II High School which opened its doors in 2009 in Schertz to serve students in the Metrocom.
Perhaps the most significant and recent educational addition in the Metrocom involves higher education. Northeast Lakeview College is a public community college within the system of Alamo Colleges, established in partnership with its communities, that is focused on student success through the offering of Associate degrees and continuing education, promoting engagement in civic activities and organizations, and encouraging participation in cultural and enrichment programs.
Northeast Lakeview College is also home to JECA, the Judson Early College Academy, a unique partnership with Judson ISD that allows students to complete the first two years of college while they are earning their high school diploma – at no cost to the student.
Beginning with the Fall 2010 Semester, the former site of Northeast Lakeview on Pat Booker Rd will become the Alamo University Center, which will be home to five public and private four-year colleges and universities offering a wide variety of baccalaureate and graduate degrees.
