If you have more than one son, feel free to choose either designated time.

  • On Thursday, August 15, the New Parents' Orientation will take place in Ellison Hall from 5:30-6:00 PM.
     
  • Our Primary (Pre-K-2nd Grade) and 3rd Grade Parents' Open Houses will start on Thursday, August 15, at 6:15 PM. You will begin in Ellison Hall and then proceed to your son's classroom, where you will meet with his teachers until 7:00 PM. 
  • Please mark your calendar for this year's Upper School Parents' Open House on Wednesday, September 4, from 7:00-8:30 PM in Ellison Hall. At the Open House program you will follow your son's daily schedule, visiting his classrooms and meeting his teacher. 
  • If you have not already done so, please schedule your son's medical appointment to ensure that all documents are ready to be uploaded into Magnus. If you have questions, contact Lauren Walls, BSN, R.N.
  • San Antonio Academy uses FACTS, (formerly known as RenWeb) an online information management system that allows you and your son to access his vital school data (attendance, homework and test grades, weekly and six-week grades) via a secure and confidential parent-student portal. FACTS also enables you to communicate online with teachers and other school personnel. Our goal is to make it easier and faster for your to track your son's progress and receive answers to your school questions. Please call us if you have any questions.
  • Please encourage your son to continue working on his summer reading (located on SAA's website sa-academy.org under Quick Links).
Classes begin on Monday, August 19, at 8:00 AM. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please call us. 
Best regards,
 
Clint DuBose
