Welcome to The Academy

The Academy - San Francisco @ McAteer focuses on the three R's – Relationships, Relevance and Rigor


We are a small school where students are known and where social justice and diversity are prioritized through authentic and relevant learning.


Our small school setting allows our teachers to create an effective learning environment by working closely with students and families in building a strong community. At our school, teachers are able to give more individual attention to students and communicate regularly with families.
