Spring Into Art!

What a special time to see The School of Arts + Enterprise return to what it does best!  Having the opportunity to experience our students singing, dancing, exhibiting their artwork, playing their instruments and sharing their stories on stage is one of the greatest joys of our school.  In the beginning of 2021, The SAE was honored as a California Department of Education Exemplary Arts Program, the largest recognition the school has ever received from the State of California.

Beginning in the winter of  2021 The SAE began the process of developing a five year strategic plan for the next chapter of our future. Focusing on major pillars for success, the final strategic plan will be presented to the school community in late summer, 2022.

New partnership with Western University of Health Sciences for after school youth programming!

The School of Arts + Enterprise is excited to announce a new partnership with Western University of Health Sciences in development of a community and youth engagement space. Thanks to the generosity of Western University, The School of Arts + Enterprise will be opening the doors to SAE Create: A Downtown Pomona Community Space located on the ground floor of 100 W 2nd Street (The Anderson Tower). Programs and services hosted at SAE Create will be available to all, not only SAE students and families. Our partners at Day One will take residence in one of the offices and provide our inaugural programming; including a Youth Advocate Program, drop in study zones and community workshops. We are excited to see how else this space might be used to empower local youth and families and are encouraged by its potential for a positive impact on our community. Please contact The SAE for more information!

“The SAE has helped me grow as not just an artist, but a person. I can't imagine where I'd be without the SAE, and I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend.”
