Our children attended SA Christian since elementary school. It is a strong academic school with the highest rankings from both public and private accreditations. The teachers and principals are loving and seek to partner with the parents to educate the students. Our oldest graduated 2 years ago and is doing very well in college (3.7 GPA). She is involved in extracurricular activities and SACS helped her prepare for the step to college both socially and academically. The athletic program is strong and competes with both private and public schools. They have a new ES athletic program coming along and high SAT scores in the HS. The school has a great family community that is unmatched in San Antonio.

both my children started for middle school. I was amazed at how smooth the transition words. There were lots of new kids that started from middle school, and you wouldn't know the difference by the first week. Such a welcoming group of kids, such a wonderful family environment. The academics are challenging, but that is what you want for your children! It definitely feels like a small Texas town for sure. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school!!!

San Antonio Christian is an amazing school. It offers an accelerated academic curriculum from Pre K through 12 grade. My child transferred to SACS her 5th grade year from Saint Mary's Hall because she was completely lacking any Christian exposure at St. Mary's Hall. At San Antonio Christian, Christian principals are taught and are intertwined into the curriculum. The teachers are great and the high morals and respect that is taught to the students can be seen in the respect the kids have for one another and teaching staff. I highly recommend San Antonio Christian Schools !!!!!

What a great community! Our oldest daughter graduated in 2012 and was extremely prepared for college, received numerous scholarships and is doing very well! Our youngest will graduate this year, so our time as SACS parents is coming to an end, but the memories and the experiences that we have had as a family, will never be forgotten. The environment is Christ-centered and somewhat like a small Texas town. Totally worth the "investment"!
