Since our founding in 1926 and our re-founding in 1989, by the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament, our mission continues with compassion, respect and acceptance to educate and encourage children, youth and families. Our programs provide a safety net for those who reach out to us daily. Our purpose is to guide them to a life of success, self-efficiency and an attitude of giving back.
The Child Development Center at Blessed Sacrament Academy provides affordable childcare paired with educational programs for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years in an exceptional setting. Located on the Southside just five minutes from downtown San Antonio, our Child Development Center (CDC) is almost “along the way” for many of our families.
Precious Minds – New Connections Blessed Sacrament Academy was awarded a grant by the Kronkosky Foundation to be used to provide information to families with children ages newborn to age three at home. The program was designed by the foundation to focus on helping families understand child development from birth; and how to give a child the security and support to develop cognitively, emotionally and physically.
Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours” is a free, six lesson program that builds positive discipline and effective communication skills for families. The goal of the program is to build family success through interactive classes that teach new techniques for raising children in an ever changing world.
Por Vida Academy Charter High School is an alternative high school on the campus of Blessed Sacrament Academy. Por Vida offers three types of diplomas for students unable, for any reason, to attend public school. Traditional diploma; Credit recovery (with no age limit); GED classes (an official GED Testing Center)
Blessed Sacrament Academy programs offer opportunities for families and youth who have come to the brink of giving up. We have experienced that our world is better when we work together to give vulnerable families and youth the chance to get off the merry-go-round of dependence and need and give them the tools to become contributing members of our society as expressed by our re-founding energy in the 1990s.
