Mission San Antonio de Valero was the first of five missions established in San Antonio. Spain had long sought a foothold in Texas and saw the mission system as an essential part of colonization and establishing a community on the frontier. Teach the Alamo: The Mission will focus on the Alamo’s 18th century colonial history.

  • Follow the rise and decline of the San Antonio missions with Mission San Antonio de Valero as a case study.
  • Hear about the native people who inhabited and built the enduring mission infrastructure.
  • Discover the lasting impact of the missions on life in South Texas from irrigation to ranching.
  • Find out what happened in the centuries after the religious objective of the missions ended and how the sites are preserved today.

Teachers receive a 6 CPE certificate upon participation. There is a one-hour break for lunch on your own.
