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.

Dear Academy Families,

Happy New Year! I hope that all of you were able to have a restful winter break and enjoy time with your family and friends.

The San Francisco Families Union would like you to take a minute and sign their petition on Action Network telling San Francisco Board of Supervisors & Mayor London Breed to keep teachers in our classrooms and to invest $60 million in public schools! Please take a minute to read & sign the petition and share it:

Many students are eligible for free meals. To see if your child qualifies, please apply online at  It only takes a few minutes to check for qualification! Just remember, we always have hot lunches for the students. It is always good to know that the students have this as an option, since we know there are times when they are unable to purchase or forget to bring lunches to school.

Remember that at you can log-in to the Family Portal to communicate with your student’s teacher, check homework, grades, and attendance. You can also see the school’s calendar of events and receive important reminders. If you have not received your Activation Code in the mail by now, please call the Main Office and ask for one.
