Academics, Done Our Way.

At The School of Arts + Enterprise, our student artists are provided with a unique and accelerated college preparatory program–one that consistently produces high percentages of graduating students. Looking at our curriculum here, it’s easy to see why. 

Our students aren’t just here to learn – they're here to become better learners. That means when they walk across that stage at graduation, they do so with the skills necessary to exceed even their own expectations, in whatever college dorm they end up at. 

It means they have a framework of what it means to be a responsible adult: an understanding of what good study habits look like, how to organize their day-to-day priorities, and how to find balance between what they like to do, and what needs to be done.

But most importantly, they leave The SAE with an academic education that rivals that of any other school in the area. Our strong cultural focus on academic excellence is the glue that makes our artistic programs and entrepreneurial courses as purposeful and comprehensive as they are. And that’s primarily because the students themselves have been taught in an environment that is infused with creativity; one that offers a real path to those who have interest in pursuing something many might consider to be off-the-beaten-path. 

All SAE academic offerings are taught by fully credentialed teachers and align with the California State Standards. The SAE is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is Arts School Network National Exemplary School (ASN).

“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.”
