At Foster Academy, we strive to create life-long learners by working collaborative with students, teachers, and parents to support student success for our school and community.
Opened in September 1961 at its present location. The school was named after a longtime teacher and administrator in the San Antonio public schools.
Inez Foster was one of the most significant educator-administrators of this century in San Antonio. She served the San Antonio Independent School District for more than forty years, the last fourteen as Assistant Superintendent in charge of Elementary Education.
She taught at Columbia University, the University of Alabama, Sul Ross State University and Our Lady of the Lake. She was the author of a number of texts in English, Mathematics, History, and Reading. She also served as an officer in a long list of civic organizations in education, health and culture. Her name is well-known in education and lay circles as she exhibited that kind of professional expertise which brought honor to her profession and that kind of personal ladyship and understanding which made her a friend to every schoolchild and every parent.
She was immensely proud to have the school named after her and visited it often. Inez Foster died June 30, 1982.
