Who We Are

We are a science, art, and entrepreneurship-focused school that teaches students preschool through 8th grade through a project-based learning methodology.

We are a community of professional educators, parents, and students who believe students should have a fun, safe, and rigorous educational experience that prepares them to be the leaders, innovators, and influencers of their generation.

What We Do

Through the disciplines of science, art, and entrepreneurship, we utilize a progressive project-based learning approach to nurture each student’s learning journey.

We facilitate engaging, hands-on learning experiences throughout the core content areas. We focus on individualized learning.  We plan projects and activities with the Multiple Intelligences theory in mind to differentiate instructional experiences. This allows us  to engage all learning styles. Our teachers have the autonomy to increase rigor for students with a higher capacity or offer remediation to encourage mastery of standards.

As educators , we shouldn’t be asking students WHAT do you want to be when you grow up; we should be asking them WHO do you want to be when you grow up. It’s an identity question that allows the child to be confident in who they are and be shown the character traits through education that will allow them to live the life and purpose that they were created for.

PreSchool

The SAE School has a progressive preschool program that is designed to stimulate growth through experiential learning. Each classroom is led by teachers who have earned a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education or are Child Development Associate (CDA)-certified.

We utilize The Creative Curriculum® that provides a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that promotes exploration and discovery as a methodology of learning. Infants as young as eight weeks old are involved with stimulating, hands-on play. Each activity is designed to assist your child in achieving developmental milestones while he/she has fun at the same time.

In the PreK4 classes, students advance their skills in core academic areas such as literacy, math, and science.  They are also exposed to other essential areas such as art, social and emotional well-being, and health and wellness in a project-oriented learning environment.

Elementary School

Our elementary grades are breeding grounds of exploration, curiosity, questioning, and discussion. We believe that children need to enjoy, appreciate, and be enthusiastic about learning, so we bring our content areas to life through project-oriented learning. Foundational academic skills like reading, writing, and arithmetic are solidified through the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE), which provides our teachers with a baseline expectation for students to master grade-level standards by end of year.

We also believe children in this stage learn about themselves and others through the world of play, so students are allowed unstructured play outside 1-2 times per day, including outdoor instruction. The teachers have the autonomy to gauge whether to go deeper into a learning opportunity or provide “brain breaks” that allow students time to release built-up energy through movement or time outside. This strategy ensures a healthy, holistic balance to our student’s learning experience.

Upper School

Our Upper School program is an incubator for developing 21st century marketplace skill sets. Project-based learning and the Summit learning platform drive the education at this level. Students are fully immersed in creating solutions to problems that have real-life applications. They are encouraged to take ownership of learning independently and are held accountable for the integrity of the project-based learning process.

Summit is an individualized learning experience that empowers students to become self-directed learners. They set goals for their learning, reflect on their progress, and build habits and mindsets to help them succeed on the next level of their educational journey.

Students in the Upper School also begin taking electives. They get to choose from a slate of courses that might be of interest to them, in addition to their academic courses. Our Upper School students are the leaders in our school. They represent and serve the student body and the SAE community in various capacities through entrepreneurship, leadership, and/or community service activities.
