Welcome to the ministry of Blessed Sacrament Academy


1940 all-girls Missionetts marching band

Blessed Sacrament Academy (BSA) was established in 1926 as an all-girls institution. In 1989, BSA changed its mission to include a child development center and in 1990 an alternative high school diploma program succeeded the traditional high school program. In 1994, BSA started a program called Parents’ Academy.

The alternative high school program was awarded a school charter by the Texas State Board of Education. On August 1, 1996, the high school program was incorporated as a separate nonprofit organization and called Blessed Sacrament Academy Second Chance High School. Blessed Sacrament Academy Second Chance High School changed its name to Por Vida, Inc. In February 2001.

Our Mission is to accompany families and individuals on a walk to a life of success and self-sufficiency by providing education and offering hope for children, youth and families as expressed by our re-founding energy in the 1990s.

We offer hope 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 opportunity to become contributing members of our society.
