Learning at The Academy
San Antonio Academy educates boys to succeed in life - scholastically, emotionally, and physically. Our program reinforces traditional values, such as love of God and country, kindness and integrity. We teach our students to be good citizens, and we believe that the development of character traits and good leadership qualities is an important part of education.
San Antonio Academy's curriculum provides a strong foundation of academic skills. Students study reading, language arts, social studies, math, science, and foreign languages. Fine arts, music, integrated technology, library/research skills and physical education broaden their perspective. We believe that a good education should teach students:
- To solve problems; i.e., to think analytically.
- To express themselves clearly, correctly and cogently.
- To become task-committed and self-disciplined.
When classes end, a new action-packed day begins as older and younger guys alike work in the computer lab, head toward the music building, study in the library, participate on one of the many athletic teams, play intramural basketball, learn strategy in chess class, expand their horizons with the Young Astronauts club or attend tutorials and enrichment classes.
The Academy provides a wide array of after-school activities for its students because these activities give our boys another opportunity to grow and learn. After-school activities foster self-confidence as the participants master new skills and learn how to be part of a team.
We want students to develop a positive self-image and attitude toward physical fitness and sports, and we encourage them to participate to the best of their ability. Various activities are offered so that each student will find at least one sport he will enjoy. Over 90% of the student body plays on one or more of the 35 sports teams, including football, lacrosse, soccer, basketball, cross-country, tennis, baseball, wrestling, and golf.
