About Haven for Hope
Haven for Hope offers a place of hope and new beginnings! While we continue to work on solving the root causes of homelessness, we provide and coordinate an efficient system of care for men, women and children experiencing homelessness.
About Animal Defense League
Chartered in 1934, the Animal Defense League is a non-profit organization that is a true no-kill shelter for abandoned, abused, or neglected dogs and cats. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for these animals by providing needed medical care, including spaying and neutering. Food, shelter, and safety are also provided – along with compassion and attention. While maintaining a healthy and loving facility, ADL consistently works to find the best possible home for each resident animal.
About Advanced Learning Academy
In March 2016, San Antonio ISD and Trinity University announced plans to partner to open a school like no other school in San Antonio, redefining what urban education looks like in our city. The vision was a school for students who seek academic challenge with greater depth and complexity and opportunities for acceleration.
It will be located across two campuses, opening with kindergarten through 3th grades housed at the site of the former Austin Academy, 621 W Euclid Ave., and the majority of the grades, 4th through 10th, at nearby Fox Tech High School, 637 N. Main Ave.
Classrooms will not be defined by grade or age but instead will serve as creative centers for students of similar levels of achievement. Students will alternate between individual and collaborative learning to tackle in-depth problems that require them to apply knowledge from across multiple subjects. And because we don’t want to hamper momentum when students are on a roll with a particular project or assignment, we will forgo a bell schedule.
By eliminating some of the traditional boundaries, the advanced learning academy will be a place where hearts and minds truly can soar.
The academy also will serve as a learning lab through Trinity University to create a pipeline of highly trained teachers and leaders for SAISD campuses. A new San Antonio area nonprofit, City Education Partners (CEP), is providing grants to SAISD and Trinity for the new teacher training and innovative school design.
