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 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.

Below are the tuition schedules for this and the next school year.  Amounts are per child.

The SAE School K12 Students Having Fun

Why is our school great for children?

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?!
