Our mission 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.

Help Us Tend and Create Healthy Outside Learning Places for At-Risk Urban Children

Healthy children learn more, and our outside children’s learning spaces are in need of volunteers. With the Child Development Center closed, we offer safe social distancing on our grounds at 1135 Mission Road (78210). We need simple landscaping assistance (mowing, picking up branches) at our center located just a few blocks from historic Mission Concepcion.… See full description

How you help With much joy and grateful hearts, we thank you for being an encourager and supporter of the work of Blessed Sacrament Academy. 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 their families. You have helped us make a difference in the life journey of those whom we have served. Thank you for having such a positive impact on the lives of others through your generosity and caring spirit. Our Child Development Center gives families the opportunity to have a job knowing their children are being exceptionally well cared for. The alternative high school, Por Vida, draws young people who are often alone in their life search into an educational and social network which guides them to develop the skills, talents and attitudes they need to get a job, enter the military or attend college. Our Parents’ Academy does an outstanding job of supporting heads of households in their most important task of providing for and teaching their children. Our greatest current needs are in the area of general operating expenses for materials certainly not budgeted for because no one could have predicted such items would be necessary. We are in the process of opening our Child Development Center very slowly, with a minimum number of children in attendance as of this week. However, purchases for extra gloves, paper towels, germicidal products, new restroom soap dispensers that hold the recommended anti-bacterial packets, smocks that teachers must wear over their own clothing, extra masks and a movable plastic shield for tables when talking with parents are all having to be purchased for the ultimate safety of our precious children. Because of the requirements of social distancing, classrooms have had to be re-configured to accommodate fewer children, electrical work had to be done outside in order to provide for a portable sink, an additional phone line had to be run outside for the front office staff to be able to use mobile head sets when on duty out of doors, and all of this comes at a time when tuition revenue was non-existent for a while, but considerably lower, currently, since so few are in attendance at this point. Finally, we are hoping to do some improvements to the courtyard so children can use that as an outdoor activity center. It has been recommended that an outdoor environment is a healthy one during this pandemic, but due to social distancing, only one class at a time can be on our playgrounds rather than several classes as before. Therefore, improvements for the courtyard could allow another play space for the children. In addition, we hope to be able to purchase more outdoor play equipment such as hopscotch and four-square play mats that children enjoy.
About us Since Blessed Sacrament Academy was established in San Antonio 1926 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 in need. Though our diverse programs, we daily offer hope to the vulnerable, and give them the tools and support to become contributing members of society. To more comprehensively meet this mission, Blessed Sacrament Academy opened the Child Development Center early childhood education program for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years in 1989, and the Parents’ Academy parenting education program for parents and caretakers of all ages in 1994.
