The Saginaw Academy for Excellence

The Saginaw Academy for Excellence (SAE) is a learning community which values high expectations for both academics and behavior.  SAE staff embraces students, families, and communities to build and develop well-rounded individuals who are independent critical thinkers and intrinsically motivated to be life-long learners. We believe that all children can learn as we seek to make a difference in the lives of our students.

The teachers and staff at SAE are committed to providing a quality education for all students in a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment. We are committed to ensuring that each child reaches his/her full potential.

Our educational approach has five principles at its core:

  • Individualized Learning Plan for all scholars
  • High expectations for student achievement
  • Safe and secure learning environment
  • Integrated technology to advance achievement
  • Collaborative relationships with parents and community members.
