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.

Why Was the SAE School Created?

At our school, it is our responsibility to figure out what a child can be GREAT at and to help cultivate that GREATNESS. Every child is unique, different, and has a very specific life path. What will be your GREATNESS?! – Jimmy Arispe, Founder/CEO Head of Schools of the most awesomest school on the planet!
