SAISD Mission Statement
To transform SAISD into a national model urban school district where
every child graduates and is educated so that he or she is prepared
to be a contributing member of the community.
Welcome to the Stephen F. Austin Academy of Fine Arts, an internal charter school of the San Antonio Independent School District. Our program offers a unique opportunity for students to attain academic achievement through the exploration, learning and development of artistic skills.
Our mission is to provide an enriched learning environment which fosters the academic, creative, emotional, and social development of all students in order to reach their maximum potential through the integration of the Fine Arts.
Our faculty and staff are committed to providing high quality instruction in a positive learning environment focused on personal growth and academic achievement by allowing students to develop and enhance their unique talents and positive attitudes to promote personal success.
Regardless of whether our students choose to pursue their interests in Art, Band, Choir, Drama or Mariachi, we firmly believe that skills learned and honed here will only enhance and fuel our students’ passion for life-long learning. We feel confident you will find what we have to offer here at the Stephen F. Austin Academy of Fine Arts invaluable to your child’s education.
