The mission of SA Life Academy is to enrich the lives of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through continuing education focused on intellectual, social, health, creative, and community involvement skills and opportunities.

Letter From Our Executive Director

Having a child with disability changes the direction of how you do life. As parents of an adult son with an intellectual and developmental disability, my husband and I want the same quality of life and opportunities for our son, Drew, as we want for our two other grown children. It just looks different. There are many programs for children with disabilities and a tremendous amount of funding available for those programs. Once the individuals age out of the public school system at 22 years old, the options dwindle in San Antonio. All of us need a life that continues to stimulate us academically, creatively, physically, socially, and have a group of friends to do life together.

To address the need, we are excited to announce the founding of SA Life Academy, a new day program that will provide exceptional continuing education opportunities aimed at helping adults with special needs live full and active lives in a safe environment. SA Life Academy will differentiate itself from the existing programs by improving the quality of curriculum offered and the qualifications of teachers and staff.

SA Life Academy and the community can be part of transforming the lives of adults with special needs and help RAISE the quality of programs for adults with disabilities in our community. Not only are we helping the adult, but their families will have a peace of mind for life. Thank you for your interest in SA Life Academy and we hope you will give today.
