SAC Day Registration

Welcome to SAC Day!

We’re glad you’re interested in our Secondary Academic Class Day (SAC Day) program.  SAC Day provides classes for 8th-12th grades in core and elective subjects.  We meet weekly on the campus of Bulverde Baptist Church, located at 1331 Bulverde Rd. Bulverde, TX.  Classes are held on Mondays August – May.

Registration for 2017-2018 is currently open for current SAC Day families. Registration will open up to the public on May 9. Early registration ends on July 15. After that date, the registration fee increases. Due to our limitation of time, space, and staff, SAC Day is unable to provide classes for students with special academic, emotional or physical needs.

After classes begin on August 14th, each tutor will determine if new students can be added to their class consistent with SAC Day policies listed online.

Bill of Rights Institute eLesson: Who Checks the FBI?

On Tuesday, May 9, 2017, President Donald J. Trump dismissed FBI director James Comey, bringing the issue of checks and balances once again into the spotlight. The FBI operates under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice as the primary federal law enforcement agency. The work of the Bureau has often brought it into conflict with all of the branches of the United States government, as well as its people, as all work in concert to balance the nation’s liberties with its security. 

 

This lesson explores the checks and balances on the FBI in the federal government, and the tension between liberty and security. Students will examine select events in FBI history and their constitutionality, examining whether the FBI’s powers are balanced in the best interest of the American people.

Who Will Care For Your Kids if Something Happens to You?

(Free legal presentation!)

Is your family legally protected if something were to happen to you?! I’m a graduated home-schooler and an attorney that focuses my practice on working with young families and small business owners to get the legal planning in place to protect who and what they love. I would love to offer a free presentation (time and content can be tailored to your group) to help you discover how you can get the legal plans in place to get peace of mind about; who would have the legal authority to care for your kids if/when something happens to you, the parents; helping your family avoid court and conflict if/when something happens to you; make sure the people you want (not who a judge chooses) is who makes legal/financial/medical decisions for you! These issues can be fairly easily addressed with simple, affordable legal planning. I can also discuss the many failure that occur when people handle these important matters themselves with low-cost online document preparation systems. I will extend a special offer to all who host and/or attend a presentation! I love working with young families and look forward to meeting the San Antonio home schooling community!

BYLINE: AMANDA DANGER

Big city reporter, Amanda Danger, needs some spark, a little quark to get her out of her funk. Who cares that she has a collection of Pulitzers? She wants to cover something new! What Amanda wants, Amanda gets when her editor sends her to Venice in search of the key to immortality and true love. Against a 1940s-ish backdrop, this wild adventure is packed with crazy language, unexpected cameos, a klutzy rival reporter, and a Noir style that just won’t quit. If you love Alfred Hitchcock movies and Film Noir, you’ll love this show!

Summer Reading Camps

What I do: I help children who struggle with reading, spelling, and pronouncing the English language become proficient at it.
How I do that: By having a lot of fun in the camps—frequently changing activities: sitting still writing or reading then going outside to play learning games to reinforce the concepts.
What are the results: Doubled reading speed, confidence and failproof spelling!
For some, it just takes a bit more time and effort but I love seeing the sparkle in their eyes when they “get it”—when they understand the concept.
On a personal note, I’ve got a hubby and I have 3 wonderful children. I love reading books and enjoying the great outdoors with them. I look forward to talking with you about your child—give me a call.

Help your child succeed with school work and gain a life-long love of reading!
