Michael Kelleher - Class of 2013 (Alumni Monday Speaker)

Michael Kelleher - Class of 2013 (Alumni Monday Speaker)

It was an honor to welcome back SAA alumnus Michael Kelleher, class of 2013, as our Alumni Monday speaker on April 15, 2024. Michael spoke to the boys about his journey, starting at The Academy to where he is in his career today.

Alumni monday - Michael Kelleher

Michael came to SAA in the 3rd grade and recalled how getting involved in sports was what helped him get acclimated to his new school. Through his introduction to sports at The Academy, he was able to learn a lot of valuable lessons that would ultimately help him on his path in the future. 

After graduating from SAA, Michael attended Alamo Heights High School. After that, he continued his education at Texas A&M, graduated with a degree in finance, and is now a commercial real estate broker.

Michael concluded his Alumni Monday presentation by reminding the boys that it is important to "keep showing up" and do the best they can in everything they do. He also encouraged them to challenge themselves continuously and to set new goals and expectations as they continue to grow.

Class of 2024

While it is bittersweet to see our Class of 2024 prepare to graduate, it is our hope that they remain in touch with us at The Academy as they continue their education. Our 8th grade Cadets have had a very busy spring, including the 8th grade class trip, the Shakespeare Play, Military Ball, Alumni/8th Grade Luncheon, 8th Grade Debate, and of course, Commencement with a luncheon to follow at Estancia del Norte. What an accomplishment these boys have achieved!

8th grade debate

Two teams of 8th graders challenged each other on the Ellison Hall stage to debate whether the United States should implement a universal basic income (UBI) in the annual 8th Grade Championship Debate. Held on Wednesday, May 15, this event underscores the emphasis The Academy places on developing public speaking skills, as students articulate their ideas confidently, think critically, and engage in formal discourse – all in front of a large audience of faculty, families, and peers.
