Educational accreditation is a kind of external and independent verification that an academic institution’s operations meet widely recognized standards. Therefore, accreditation is an important qualification for any school: It demonstrates that a school is meeting a set of standards outlined by each accrediting organization.
The SAE School’s mission to be the most exceptionally Safe, Innovative & Rigorous school in Georgia is partly demonstrated through its continued pursuit and maintenance of accreditation from various state and national organizations.
The SAE School first received accreditation from the Georgia Accrediting Commission on September 11, 2013. GAC has been serving Georgia since 1904 and has a straightforward approach to accrediting schools.
The SAE School’s entire Kindergarten through 12th grades are accredited with GAC.
