Why choose a private STEAM focused private education over a local public school? Below are some of the reasons you should consider SAC for your child’s education.
- ADVANCED MATHEMATICS

Families have access to curriculum, grades, and homework assignments online. The school subscribes and utilizes online learning tools like the Accelerated Reader (AR) for language arts and IXL for language arts and mathematics.
- ADVANCED COMPUTER CLASSES
All students have access to the computer lab. The junior kindergarten – 2nd grade classes utilize the lab with their classroom teacher while all others receive instruction from our Computer Science Specialist. 3rdgrade students will begin by learning parts of a computer along with basic typing skills. As they advance, students will learn how to use the Microsoft Office Suite programs, Adobe Photoshop, computer programming and how to create applications for phones and tablets.

Beginning in kindergarten, free tutoring is available twice a week for students that need additional support.
