Discover. Nurture. Protect. 

To discover, nurture, and protect each child’s individual life and academic journey. This is what separates The SAE School from other schools. We have committed to this purpose and we are intentional about carrying it out.


We have a progressive preschool program that is designed to stimulate growth through experiential learning. Each classroom is led by teachers who have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education or are Child Development Associate (CDA) -certified. In addition to being licensed, SAE goes above and beyond and is also Quality Rated.

Lower School

 These elementary grades are breeding grounds of exploration, curiosity, questioning, and discusion. We believe that children need to enjoy, appreciate, and be enthusiastic about learning.

Upper School

These grades are an icubator for devloping 21st century marketplace skill sets. Project-based learning and the Summit Learning platform drive the education at this level. Students are fully immersed in creating solutions to problems that have real-life applications.

My family was introduced to Project Based Learning during our tour of the SAE School in 2015. We were immediately intrigued by the teaching model, and ultimately joined the school that same year. Since then, we’ve been amazed at the growth of our children and inspired by the energy of the teachers and administrators. Each child has developed their own unique passions and personality; they’re excelling in various subjects; and most importantly, they look forward to school each day. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome. This is the learning environment we wish for all children!

It has been such a refreshing experience having our kids at SAE. The small classroom sizes, the holistic and project based learning, and the dedication of the faculty and staff have been very good for our daughters. We were nervous when we first started as the schedule and teaching philosophy is not the norm, but once we got into it, we were very happy. The energy at SAE is attenuated perfectly for the children, and we would recommend this school to families that are open to an educational experience that is fun yet impactful for their kids.

My daughter loves going to school! The teachers love what they do and administrators are always looking out for the best intrest of the kids! I can honestly say she loves to learn because of this school. They offer a variety of after-school programs from dance to cooking to cup stacking to science club! The bottom line is they make learning fun!
