Midnight Light
The Newest Roadrunner Tradition

Our front entrance monument is an award winning architectural element and a welcoming symbol that represents our strong presence in the San Antonio community. The monument is already a popular photo spot for new students, visitors and graduating seniors, but lighting the monument in our school colors at the beginning of each academic year makes a proud statement that we are open for business and our spirit burns bright.
