CLDS has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 1996. We are honored to be among the few San Antonio preschools to receive this recognition. We take great pride in providing your child with the highest quality of education in a loving and nurturing environment.
Christ Lutheran Day School’s curriculum philosophy is based upon the following principles:
- Developmentally appropriate practices as established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
- A focus on the whole child – to include development in the areas of literacy, sensory organization, motor activity, social-emotional development, and approach to learning.
- A belief that children develop through a developmental continuum, rather than accomplishing a particular skill set all at once.
Christ Lutheran Day School has created a curriculum that looks at each child’s individual needs and goals to help scaffold him/her to his/her fullest learning potential.

As San Antonio’s founding school district, SAISD neighborhood schools have served the heart of the Alamo City for more than 100 years. Today, SAISD serves about 47,000 students across more than 90 schools in our culturally proud, urban community.

Outside of the traditional classroom, the spirit of SAISD can be found in programs and activities from extensive athletics to fine arts – including a mariachi curriculum that was pioneered in our District before being modeled across the nation.
From forward-thinking academic and extracurricular programs at our neighborhood schools to a growing list of specialized schools, SAISD students can customize their own educational experience and find what truly drives them. Every student has a journey, and SAISD is supporting that path wherever it may lead for each of its students.
