Finding the Perfect Accounting School For You
Few career fields show more promise than business accounting. Accounting clerks have the potential for significant wage growth, as well as strong job security.
While there are few official requirements for this position, there are a significant number of people looking for employment in this competitive market, and you will be a more competitive candidate if you attend a diploma or associate’s degree program. In San Antonio, you can attend such programs at:
San Antonio College San Antonio College is one of the most flexible accounting schools in San Antonio, offering three separate certificates and one associate’s degree program in subjects related to accounting. In theory, San Antonio College is ideal for students who seek extensive options and the flexibility to move from a certificate to an associate’s programs. However, the school has one of the lowest graduation rates in the state.
The Southern Careers Institute Southern Careers Institute has two campuses in San Antonio, both of which offer business accounting diploma programs. The school focuses on providing hands-on training, simulating the environment that students will have to work in once they find jobs as business accounting specialists. Although the school does not offer an associate’s degree program, it strives to include as many practical skills as possible, giving students a well-rounded education which can be completed in as little as 33 weeks.
An average of 85% of students in this program graduate on time, and 82% of graduates are able to find employment in a related field within a year of graduation. Although business accounting is a promising field, it is by no means the only source of a livable wage and job security. Medical assistants, billing and coding specialists, computer technicians, and a wide range of other specialists all enjoy good wages and a chance to make a difference in the world.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
