Curriculum & Programs
Three decades of research shows that boys learn differently from girls. As an all-boys school, San Antonio Academy uses research on the unique strengths of the boy brain to create an environment and educational experience that best supports boy development. The Academy is a school where boys get to be boys while learning how to be compassionate leaders.
San Antonio Academy is a wonderful school for our son. The academic opportunities and staff are amazing! We couldn’t be happier with SAA and love their motto: “Be honest. Be kind. Be the best you can be."– Laura H.
The "Bond of Brotherhood" emcompasses all of the signature programs at SAA. An afterschool atmosphere where the boys play and interact together, the opportunities that arise during family-style lunches, and opportunities for the older boys to mentor our younger students, are all part of the unspoken traditions that make The Academy unique.
See how our boys learn in an educational environment intentionally crafted for them.

Parents of these boys will not want to miss it!
