My son is in his 3rd year at the high school and my daughter is in the middle school. We cannot be happier with the way the teachers and staff partner with parents to lead and guide students to give them a solid education that will prepare them for college and beyond as well as help them mature in their walk with the Lord. We transferred to SACS from public school and although the adjustment was challenging as the coursework is more rigorous, it has been worth every penny and our children have said they haven't enjoyed school like this since kindergarten. :)
San Antonio Christian Schools (SACS) is more of an elitist collection of schools parading under the term "Christian." The majority of the students are extremely critical and judgmental of those they deem "inferior" and the administration does nothing to help stop this. Most of the opportunities for school involvement listed on the school's website are highly fabricated and are no where to be found in the school. The choices for classes are slim and none; there are only two choices for foreign language: Spanish or Latin. Teachers seem to not be focused on teaching the students to the fullest extent and seem only focused on the idea of "square-filling"; that is, reaching a certain point in the textbook to say the students have learned enough when, in reality, the students are struggling to learn the unrealistically fast-paced concepts. In addition, I was told by the guidance counselor(s) that striving to become a future student of Harvard was a "stretch" and to hope for something more "realistic."
Having graduated 2 of our children from SACS, with 3 more down the pipe and our family attending this school for 10 years, I can truly say that this is an excellent school! The faculty and staff truly follow our Lord's leading and the administrators are wonderful; they really care for the students. Many AP and Dual Credit courses have been added in the high school. Our daughters, now in college, were very well prepared, academically, for the universities. The teachers provide factual knowledge right along with direction from Truth from the Word. I love how they rely on the eternal wisdom of the Bible to guide their policies, not to cultural mores of society. Well worth the investment!!!
I sent both of my children here from elementary to middle school but decided to pull them out after 8th. This school has little AP and no dual credit. Both of my children went on to excellent schools having accumulated 2 full semesters worth of college credit that they would simply would not have been able to do at SACS (which saves money). Most of the parents and teachers I had come in contact with had been wonderful, caring people. But be warned, this school is extremely religious and with that they pack on the judgement. I was disgusted at their refusal to let a woman parent on the Board of Trustees because of some Bible verse claiming that women are subservient and men should be in leadership positions. This is the twenty-first century and the message that sent to my daughter was unacceptable and was one of the contributing factors as to why I withdrew them. Many wives stay home at this school and I watched as they judged the women who worked, were single parents, or divorced. The teachers also teach more Biblical science as opposed to factual science and openly assert in class that the Republican party is correct, as opposed to giving the kids the facts and letting them decide
Both of my children attended SACS K-12. The oldest is a freshman in college and the youngest is getting ready to graduate. It has been a great experience. I am continually amazed at their spritual maturity. Their knowledge of truth and their solid belief in the Bible is worth every penny. Academically they have received a great education as well. My older child was accepted into a very competative college and has done well her first year. No school is perfect but overall this school's heart is in the right place!
