The Academy has been an awesome experience for all 3 of my children. My oldest graduated in 2010. He was a fine arts student that never would have achieved so much in the public school system. He is now a Navy airman and a great source of pride for our family. My second and third child still attend the Academy. In addition to great academics, roles of leadership, they have also obtained a great resume for college athletics in their future. I credit a great teacher/parent communication, the student/teacher ratio, and the commitment of Christian faculty and staff to not only teach, but to mentor these young people by investing in their lives.

I went to high school here and all I can say is there is a HUGE bullying problem. I was bullied relentlessly, and I remember like yesterday when I went to the teacher she just laughed and called me the "nickname" all the spoiled rich kids had given me. She never stopped the bullying in class either. I hate this school it destroyed my self esteem.

Transferring to San Marcos Academy was the best decision we ever made for our child. I only wish we would have known about the Academy sooner so that we would have had several more years here. The staff, teachers and coaches are kind and the most supportive you will find anywhere. The structure of the School is preparing our child for College, therefore, we feel the transition will be more smooth. The School does so much for the student body and the extras will amaze. The extra activities are fun and truly based on what the students want to do. We love having the foreign students on campus so everyone can learn about their culture.

I went to the Academy for one year my Freshman year and I loved it. I did a lot better than I have done in any other school. I have several learning disabilities (ADHD, dyslexia) and was still able to make A's and B's, thanks to after school study hall's and tutorials that they hold for students who are struggling in their classes. I found this school to be a lot more FUN than any other schools I've been to. They have a lot of activities for students such as dances, contests, fun days, six flags trips, camping trips, etc. I was involved in the choir program and it is so well structured and the teachers are awesome! We got to go to TAPPS regional and state competitions and that was so exciting. I was a cheerleader and I played softball and basketball and the coaches are really great and encouraging.

I attended the academy all seven years, and it had it s ups and downs, The teachers are outstanding, incredibly attentive to students needs. The faculty and staff strive to see everyone succeed. With great advanced classes, I took every AP and college-credit course, and had my freshman year out of the way before graduating high school. The Academy prepared me for college, and I graduated Baylor University in three years. I found that many of my college courses were easier than the Academy s! The extra curricular opportunities are amazing. I participated in theater, music, art, athletics, and volunteer work, and even took a trip to Paris over spring break my senior year. I got the chance to meet many foreign students, my best friend was from Hong Kong. I feel the Academy offers so much for those who really want to receive it and helps to see those who don t succeed.

Academics OK But if transferring in from public school curriculum does not seem to follow. Students not closely followed by any one person. Structured environment but no individual care.
