Where Boyhood is Celebrated

Since 1886, The Academy has done more than prepare boys for high school. We educate them to succeed in life – scholastically, emotionally, and physically. All aspects of the SAA experience are focused on the educational and developmental needs of boys. In other words, we know boys.

Academy Boys graduate with a strong academic foundation, a positive self-image, strong leadership skills, and much more. Boys learn that integrity, pride in achievement, and kindness are as important as their scholastic work, and what it truly means to be a gentleman.

At The Academy, boys are taught to Be honest. Be kind. Be the best they can be.®

The McNelis Family

The real magic of SAA starts to become apparent as the boys mature into more leadership on campus. It’s an investment that will pay off for your entire family.

The Rohlfs Family

Beyond the education (which is excellent), each of my sons are known, uplifted and cherished for their individual talents and personalities.

In addition to the strong academics, San Antonio Academy has a high focus on strong character development, while showing great care for all the boys. It’s been the best place for our son. – Chip Nicewander, Class of ’26 & ’31 Parent
