Welcome from the Director of Enrollment Management
Thank you for beginning to explore the educational possibilities of Science & Arts Academy! Our vibrant school community is comprised of gifted learners in Junior Kindergarten through eighth grade. When you choose Science & Arts Academy, you enter a school community that is committed to fostering students’ full academic and artistic abilities. Children come to Science & Arts Academy from over 60 different Chicagoland communities and a variety of different backgrounds, and leave with a strong academic foundation, an appreciation and respect for self and others, and a zest for learning.
SAA is all about relationships, and the Admissions Team’s goal is to build a relationship with you as we work together to navigate the application process step by step. We'll help you learn as much as possible about SAA and fully connect you with the SAA experience. Together, we will help determine if SAA is the best match for your child’s educational journey.
All great journeys begin with a first step, and we encourage you to reach out to our Admissions Team via email, by phone, or by submitting an online inquiry to learn more about SAA. One of the best ways to truly appreciate all we have to offer is by visiting our school. School tours are offered on a regular basis, and can be scheduled online or by giving us a call. Until then, please take a moment to explore our website, Facebook page, and Twitter feed to learn more about our rigorous programs, talented students, and highly qualified faculty.
Choosing a school for your child is an important and difficult decision. As you prepare to take this first step into exploring the educational environment best fit for your child, I’d like to share a story about one child’s experience when he visited SAA for the first time. At the end of this child’s visit, when his mother asked him how his day went, the child simply looked up with a gleaming smile and said in amazement, “I never knew school could be like this.” By working together throughout the admissions process, we hope that your child and family can also experience this same type of realization about our truly special and unique school community.
On behalf of the Admissions Team, thank you for your interest in SAA, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
