Tuition: k-12th Grade

The SAE School Tuition Model
Project Based School Students in Mableton, GA

As you have read by now, there are many unique characteristics to our school that distinguish us from the other educational options for families in our area.  Our tuition model is yet another of these unique elements. Our goal is to provide an excellent educational experience for our students while ensuring that our school is affordable and accessible for our community, now and in the future. Our commitment to finding innovative ways to create our school extends to tuition as well.

Please know that all of our founders are parents and understand the financial and emotional challenges that children may bring to a family.  Because of our nonprofit status and being solely focused on the well-being of our students, we have flexibility with how we structure tuition payments.  Each family is unique and more times than not we are able to make adjustments to a family’s specific financial situation.  As is the case with our entire school philosophy, one size does not fit all.

2016-2017 Tuition Schedule

Below is the tuition schedule for the 2016-2017 school year.  The Technology Fee and Deposit are per child.  Please contact our Admissions Office by email at Admissions@SAEschool.org should you have any questions, or you can call 678-239-3202.  We look forward to reviewing your information and helping you determine if SAE is the best school choice for your children.

Why Was the SAE School Created?

WHY WAS THE SAE SCHOOL CREATED?

I have no intention of moving my family out of Southern Cobb County. I want for my son what any parent wants for their child - to attend schools that are academically challenging and safe. For our small family of three, we only have one shot at getting this right, and will. I will build it for him here in this community, with your guidance and support.
