IASA employs innovative, visionary leaders at every level. We’re proud to introduce you to our Head of School:

Raul Hinojosa III, Ed.D. has been an international educator and school administrator for over 30 years. His experience at both the elementary and middle school levels will serve IASA well.

Fluent in both English and Spanish, Dr. Hinojosa is an educational pioneer in dual language immersion. He has led and improved multiple schools—including international schools in Qatar, Kazakhstan (with Chevron employees), and Costa Rica—and created an international teacher-recruiting program.

Dr. Hinojosa holds a B.S. degree from Texas A&M, two M.Ed. degrees in bilingual education/ESL and administration and supervision, and a doctor of education in educational leadership from Sam Houston State University. He is an Eagle Scout and has served as a board member of the Association of Hispanic School Administrators, on the State Advisory Committee for the Texas Consortium for Dual Language, and was recently inducted into the Tyrus R. Timm Honor Registry at Texas A&M for leadership and service in education.

Welcome Dr. Hinojosa!

A Message from Our Head of School

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in The International Academy of San Antonio (IASA). We are excited about this new school year!

At IASA, we believe all children can create a better future for themselves, and we’re thrilled that our exemplary, inquiry-based program is playing a part in that future. Our family-oriented personalized educational environment provides students with high academic standards while encouraging them to be responsive, confident, engaged, and innovative learners.

We want to equip every student at International Academy to overcome real-world obstacles and lead productive, successful lives as part of a global community. That’s why we are committed to helping students acquire language skills in English, Spanish, and the essential language of the 21st Century—coding.

We look forward to meeting you and encourage you to reach out with questions.


Dr. Raúl Hinojosa
