Building a Foundation for Boys - It All Begins Here

San Antonio Academy was founded in 1886 by Dr. W.B. Seeley, who sought to develop young men with academic discipline, strong character, and good physical condition. These traits became the hallmarks of San Antonio Academy.

Today, Dr. Seeley's legacy serves as our inspiration. We continue to build young men of character, teaching them how important it is to "Be honest. Be kind. Be the best you can be." We are committed to Four Foundational Pillars throughout our Primary, Elementary, and Middle School programming: Scholarship, Leadership, Integrity, and Brotherhood. Everything that our students experience is rooted in what's best for boys: how they learn, how their brains develop, and how they engage with the world around them. 

We educate boys for life and prepare each young man to fulfill his noble purpose.
