"Honoring our Tradition... Investing in the Future"
Thanks to over 200 donors, in just three years, The Academy’s endowment campaign raised $10.2 million for endowment.

Endowment operates like an investment account keeping the school strong for future generations. Each year the school draws income from the endowment – 4% of the twelve-month average. That income supplements the operating budget, taking pressure off tuition. The need for endowment is on-going at The Academy.
San Antonio Academy has an Investment Policy which ensures the most effective investment and spending activities.

SAA’s key endowment priorities are:

Teaching Excellence
Supplements faculty salaries, which enable The Academy to attract and retain the best teachers in San Antonio
Supports continuous educational opportunities for faculty
Scholarship Endowment Funds
Allow The Academy to continue to enroll a diverse student body and provide need-based assistance to students
Technology Endowment

Provides timely hardware and infrastructure upgrades, new software programs and teacher training to keep pace with the rapid changes in technology

Campus Endowment
Provides flexibility and capability in doing what needs to be done to enhance learning environments and beautify the buildings and grounds for present and future generations
General Endowment
Allows the Board and staff flexibility to respond to new opportunities and challenges

In 2007 The Board of Trustees raised more that $9 million of new endowment funds, increasing San Antonio Academy’s endowment from $5.7 million to $13.6 million with pledges that will carry it to $15 million within five years.
