Apply to The SAE School

The SAE School Open Admissions Process Depends on Availability.

Application Process for
2016-17 and 2017-18 School Years

The SAE School Adimissions

Please note: Ours is an open admissions process. Depending on availability, students may have the option of being accepted for the current school year. We accept applications throughout the year for the following academic year so that families can apply whenever they are ready to make a decision.  

The admissions process typically starts with a visit to the school and a tour of our campus. Families then submit a Student Application, Learner Profile, and any other relevant documents. At least one Teacher Recommendation is required, as well as the student’s transcripts for the last 2-3 years.

Our admissions team assesses the student application and corresponding documents and schedules testing/shadowing dates based on available space in the appropriate classrooms.

The process from completed application to admissions decision can take as little as two weeks.

Within a few days of a student completing all steps of the admissions process, the school makes and communicates the decision. Families do not have to wait until April to find out if their child has been accepted.

Once families receive the acceptance email and enrollment contract, they have two weeks to return the signed contract and non-refundable tuition deposit to secure a slot.
