SCHOOL OF THE ARTS FOR BOYS ACADEMY
School of the Arts for Boys Academy (SABA) is a school that empowers and "BUILDs" culturally and linguistically diverse boys to be strong, creative, academic scholars, critical thinkers, and community leaders through a culturally responsive arts-based education.
IMPORTANT NEWS FROM SABA
DUE TO AN UNANTICIPATED LOSS OF OUR FACILITY, THE SCHOOL OF THE ARTS FOR BOYS ACADEMY (SABA) REGRETFULLY ANNOUNCES THAT OUR SCHEDULED OPENING WILL BE DELAYED BY ONE YEAR.
We remain committed to our vision and appreciate the widespread support we continue to receive from families and the community at-large. We anticipate announcing a new location and timeline for 2023-24 school enrollment in the very near future. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
The School of the Arts for Boys Academy (SABA) will begin its inaugural school year of operation in August 2023. Families in Chatham County and surrounding communities are encouraged to apply for enrollment for their rising grades 3-to-6 boys. SABA will provide an exceptional educational opportunity, developed specifically to meet the needs of young boys and the academic challenges they often encounter in traditional schools.
Please click here to apply for enrollment. SABA will be accepting applications through April 30, 2023, at which time our students for year #1 will be selected at random via computer-generated technology.
Clear School Mission
SABA will specifically focus on educational equity coupled with intentional efforts in removing significant barriers that directly and/or indirectly deny groups of culturally and linguistically diverse boys a high-quality education. While we will serve all students, we will target students who have been underserved as evidenced by their low proficiency and growth records and discipline patterns.
