A Little About Us
WELCOME TO SPANISH GROVE ACADEMY!
Thank you for your interest in Spanish Grove Academy! SGA, as we call it, is one of the most sought after preschools in San Antonio. Whether your child is already fluent in Spanish or you are seeking to introduce them in the language, we have a spot waiting for them at our school!
At Spanish Grove Academy we take the application process very seriously. Our goal is to provide each applicant family the opportunity to learn as much as they can about the school and have all of their questions answered.
Admissions into SGA is selective and limited however we do offer rolling admissions throughout the entire year, where space is available. If a program is full, you may complete the admission steps in order to be placed on the wait list until space becomes available. Our families who began their experience at SGA on the wait list, and have since graduated from the program, will tell you- it is worth the wait!
We LOVE this school. Our children have blossomed here. It's amazing how fast they picked up Spanish. All of the teachers and staff are incredibly professional and show a true interest in our children. I would HIGHLY recommend Spanish Grove Academy.
We strive to create a better world through education in a safe, secure, and caring environment. We use research-based techniques to support all students to reach high levels of academic achievement and biliteracy in an independent learning environment that values multiculturalism. We recognize and celebrate individual critical thinking and asking questions to contribute to the common good.
The purpose of SGA is to provide a safe environment where children are encouraged to grow emotionally, cognitively, socially and physically so that their greatest potential may be realized.
The following are the basic principles upon which our school community functions:
Kindness, consideration and respect for the feelings and well-being of others at all times.
Honesty in all personal and academic endeavors.
Respect for all property, that of individuals, and that of the school.
Compliance with the school’s program, regulations, and routines.
Always find positive solutions to problems.
Think critically and logically to solve not only your problems, but the problems of others.

After being on the waitlist for 5 months. Now having been part of the SGA family, it was more than worth the wait! With Spanish not spoken in our home, we weren't sure what to expect but our son now has the ability to communicate perfectly in Spanish which is a huge accomplishment! SGA is an amazing, clean facility, the teachers and staff are always so supportive and loving and they put both education, as well as instilling good behavior as their top priority. We have you to thank...he has now been accepted into the dual language program for Kinder and even his teacher thought he came from a Spanish speaking home! Thank you!
"We were so excited to get the call..."
Our twins were only suppose to be there for the first summer camp session, or at least that was the plan. We liked it so much we decided to keep them for second summer session. And as the second session was coming to an end we decided to leave them there for the upcoming school year. Spanish Grove has such a welcoming, caring and loving environment you can't help but smile when you are there because everyone is so friendly. My boys are happy and love to tell me about their day. We choose Spanish Grove because of the Spanish but we stayed because of the experience.
