San Antonio Academy is a school unlike any other Pre-K thru 8th-grade experience. To have the opportunity for your child to attend this historical place is a win. It is the faculty, staff, and energy of all boys that makes it a special place for the students to grow, learn, excel and achieve. Be honest. Be kind. Be the best you can be. This is the SAA motto both spoken and strived for on a daily basis.

The San Antonio Academy is a wonderful school for our son. The academic opportunities and staff are amazing! Not only are the teachers some of the best in the city, they know how to teach to boys and they know how to get the boys excited about learning. My son has learned manners beyond anything I could have taught him. The alumni network at this school is some of the strongest I have ever seen. We couldn`t be happier with SAA and love their motto: "Be honest. Be kind. Be the best you can be." SAA is an incredibly special place- one we highly, highly recommend!

Our son is currently in 2nd Grade having started at the San Antonio Academy in Pre-K. The growth I have seen in my son is a testament to the power of this school. The Academy is unique in grooming little boys to become young men whose creed is "BE HONEST. BE KIND. BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE." They know how to teach boys and get the most out of them. So proud of our school and the boys that make up this amazing community and Bond of Brothers.

San Antonio Academy is a premier school with the main goal to teach boys from PreK through 8th grade in an atmosphere of God and country, brotherhood, inclusion, and excellence. SAA boys play hard, compete well, learn intelligently and grow from little boys to young men of character. There is not another school like it in the city and very few in the country.
