College guidance begins in the spring of a student’s eighth grade year. At this time, students meet with a counselor to review and select their courses for the following year.
Throughout their high school career, students attend individual and group sessions which focus on academic advising, college admissions test preparation, extracurricular involvement, career and college major exploration, college selection, the college application process and scholarship searches.
The Guidance Department encourages students and parents to meet with them to discuss the path to graduation for their student as needed. We strive to ensure our students and their families are well-prepared and informed as they determine colleges or universities of interest.
Parents/guardians are required to sign their portion of the forms. Parents/guardians may FAX forms to physician’s office to obtain signature. The physician may FAX the forms directly to the elementary or secondary school offices as needed.
Prior to the first day of school, your student’s immunizations must be up to date, and a current copy of them must be submitted to the nurse’s office, WITHOUT EXCEPTION!
Incoming 4 year olds require immunizations for DTAP, Polio, MMR and VAR. Incoming 7th graders require a booster of the t-Dap vaccine, a Chicken Pox booster and a Meningococcal vaccine.
If you do not wish to immunize your student, you MUST have a current affidavit from the state of Texas filled out correctly and submitted prior to the first day of school. Any student who is missing proper immunization documents may be removed from the classroom until proof of records have been submitted to the nurse.
If your student requires a prescription drug during school hours, that unexpired medication must be submitted to the nurse’s office in its original packaging from the pharmacy, labeled correctly with your student’s information and dosing instructions. A Physician Authorization for Medication form should accompany the medication if your student is in elementary school.
If your student has a prescription for an inhaler or epi-pen, please submit the Asthma Action Plan or epi-pen Allergy Emergency Action Plan. These forms must be filled out each year and signed by your prescribing physician. When it is not recommended by a physician that a student carry his/her inhaler, those inhalers will be stored and administered by the nurse as necessary. All prescription and submitted over-the-counter medications will be sent with an adult chaperone on field trips and retreats throughout the year.
For elementary students, no over the counter medicine will be given unless it is submitted to the nurse’s office with a medication form prior to the start of your student’s first day of school. The medication form alerts the nurse to any health concerns you feel are necessary to share about your student’s history or current needs. Over the counter medications must be in the original packaging from the store as no bags of loose pills will be accepted. It will be labeled with your
student’s name and stored in a basket behind locked doors. It will be your responsibility to pick up all submitted medications prior to your student’s last day of school.
Included with your online enrollment was a medical release acknowledgment. All students must have a medical release form on file to receive over-the-counter medication. The medical release gives the nurse permission (or not) to dose your student with necessary, provided over-the-counter medication. If you have other medications such as multi-symptom cold medications, decongestants or even vitamins/supplements, those items must be submitted to the nurse’s office prior to the start of your student’s first school day. They must be in the original packaging from the store as no bags of loose pills will be accepted. They will be labeled with your student’s name and stored in a basket behind locked doors.
Hot lunches are available to all students through our campus food service, SAGE Dining. Each PreK-12th grade student must have an account to purchase food. No money is exchanged in the cafeteria line. Visit the FACTS Family Portal to create a lunch account and to manage your balance. Microwaves are available in the Student Life Center for MS/HS students.

As part of San Antonio Christian school’s 21st century educational program, students in Grades 6-11 are required to have devices that support our curriculum. SACS requires students to bring a device to school.

Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, both unlocking extraordinary opportunities and posing real risks for young people. Students are using the immense power of the Internet and mobile technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined, both in and out of the classroom. However, issues that emerge from this 24/7 “connected culture” are surfacing both in schools and at home
San Antonio Christian School believes digital-literacy and citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century, especially in schools like ours that are using technology to transform learning. That’s why we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly. In addition to helping students become adept at using technology for information gathering and problem-solving, our teachers aim to instill an understanding of what it means to be a good digital citizen. Today, one of the many facets of building character is helping students understand how to be safe, honest, and kind online and when using digital technology.
San Antonio Christian School is committed to empowering our constituency with information about the Internet and the possible dangers to children online. To ensure a safe and positive experience for children we offer some links with information that will hopefully empower students, teachers, parents, to make the Internet a safer place.
San Antonio Christian School’s FACTS Family Portal gives you, the busy parent, an opportunity to get more involved in your child’s academic progress and future success – all via the Internet!

Although you will not incur a re-enrollment fee, families are asked to annually review policies and reaffirm the Continuous Enrollment Agreement through their FACTS Family Portal. Students who choose not to re-enroll will need to contact the Admissions Office to obtain a withdrawal form.
How does Continuous Enrollment work?
The first year your student enrolls is the only year you will be required to pay an enrollment fee. New Tuition and Fee schedules will always be published by January for your review.
Subsequent years - Your student will have a reserved seat in each subsequent year and thus be continuously enrolled. You will secure their enrollment by reviewing and submitting the following year's re-enrollment commitment packet. Submitting the commitment packet is required each year, but there will not be a fee.
What do I commit to paying when I enroll?
Do I have to commit to staying through graduation?
We hope your students thrive at SACS and walk across the stage at a May graduation. We understand this may not happen for some families. Therefore, there is always an option to notify us of your intention not to return and therefore be released from your Continuous Enrollment Contract. Each year, the opportunity to be released from your contract without financial obligation for future years is January 31st.
How do I withdraw from my Continuous Enrollment Agreement?
To withdraw (or opt-out) of your Continuous Enrollment agreement for the upcoming school year, you must submit a Continuous Enrollment Withdrawal Form, which can be obtained from the Admissions Office. If we receive this form by January 31st, you will have no further financial obligation for the following years. See the breakdown below of withdrawal time frames and your associated financial obligation, per the Continuous Enrollment Agreement. Because of the financial commitment on the school's part, withdrawals from the agreement after January 31st will be billed the corresponding tuition obligation through your FACTS account. If you withdraw from your agreement after January 31st, you will be billed your corresponding obligation through your FACTS account in May. Withdrawal notifications received after May will be assessed the corresponding tuition obligation and will be due at the time of your withdrawal request.
January Opt-out with no fee
February 10% of tuition is due
March - May 25% of tuition is due
June - July 50% of tuition is due
August or later 100% of tuition is due
Do you take special circumstances into consideration?
As always, SACS understands changes may happen. If you choose to cancel your Continuous Enrollment Agreement outside the January enrollment period, you may be released from the financial obligation only be one of the following life events:
If your family who experiences other difficulties such as unemployment, separation/divorce, or unexpected medical illness of the person responsible for paying tuition, you may apply for tuition assistance through the Student Billing Office. Financial needs will be reviewed on an individual basis.
Can I apply for Tuition Assistance?
Yes. SACS offers a needs-based tuition assistance program. Applications for tuition assistance are processed through Student Billing in the Executive Office. See more information here. After you have submitted your form to FACTS with all necessary documents, it can take up to 4 weeks to receive your tuition assistance offer from SACS.

Where do I send my Continuous Enrollment Withdrawal Form?
