TASTE OF THE SOUTHSIDE - More Than Just A Festival

It’s no secret San Antonio has a large number of students who don’t stay in high school to graduate. Without attending school and without a high school diploma, these youths and teens are often left hanging over a precipice — in danger of falling into lives as under-educated, chronically unemployed adults.   Coming from many forms of adversity, and yes, sometimes even chaos, students at Por Vida Academy find a place where teachers, staff, and peers help them understand their worth. “It’s about seeing the potential of each student and encouraging them to go for it,” says Isai Melgoza, Student Counselor and mentor.


  

TASTE OF THE SOUTHSIDE is an opportunity to experience the culture, food, art and music of San Antonio's south side, while benefiting the students and campus of Por Vida Academy.  We are truly "Deep In The Heart" of the city. 

TASTE OF THE SOUTHSIDE will start on Saturday, April 13th with Opening Ceremonies at noon. Activities will continue until 10 p.m. with games/rides for kids, exhibitors, food & music for the entire family.

This annual event is FREE and open to the public. Parking will be available.

Here For Our Community

For over 20 years, Por Vida Academy Charter High School, located in the southside of San Antonio on the campus of Blessed Sacrament Academy, has been quietly throwing a life-line to some of these most vulnerable in our community.

More Than Just A Second Chance

Por Vida Academy has been available to hundreds of young people who continue to arrive in need, and who depart with a high school diploma opening countless doors for them. While Por Vida is not a religious affiliated school, a member of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament Congregation serves on the Board of Directors.
