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.


The School of the Arts for Boys Academy (SABA) will begin its inaugural school year of operation in August 2022. 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, 2022, 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.
