I join all the other Academy teachers in the promise that we will make
every effort to provide the exceptional academic program that is part of
our schoolís mission. We understand why you send your boys to the
Academy, and we feel compelled to live up to your expectations.
Geometry is a high school math course that the majority of students do not encounter until they are in the 10th grade. College bound students usually take Geometry in the 9th grade. Very few students complete the course in 8th grade.
Your boys have chosen to mathematically challenge themselves at the highest level this year. Every one of them has what it takes to be successful in completing Geometry for a high school credit, but none will find it easy. I hope they continue to work hard to accomplish the goal of successful completion.

I recommend that you spend a little time perusing my web site:
Finally, San Antonio Academy is my life. I may do other things as
a diversion, but my heart and my mind (and often, even my body) are right
here, working to be the best I can be at helping your sons be the best
that they can be.
