Athletics and Sports Teams
San Marcos Academy encourages students to get involved in sports. With upper school and middle school athletic programs for boys and girls of all skill levels, there is plenty of opportunity. Academy coaches place a higher value on how an athlete plays than on the outcome of a game; sportsmanship, integrity, and character on the field or court are the values that characterize a winner at San Marcos Academy. It is this emphasis on sportsmanship that makes SMA athletes stand out among Texas boarding schools.
SMA offers several different sports as well as top-quality athletic facilities on our spacious, hill country campus. SMA athletes compete against students from other private boarding schools and day schools in Texas. Upper school athletes (grades 9-12) compete in TAPPS (The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) while middle school athletes (grades 6-8) compete in the Christian Athletic League of San Antonio (CALSA) and through intramural sports.
