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.

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.

Hello Future SABA Families!


The time is here for the SABA Lottery on Monday, May 3rd at 7pm.  We will hold the lottery via Zoom (see link below).  You will be able to see the actual lottery taking place, followed by an email message of the lottery results.  


Once your son is selected, you have 14 days to confirm his seat and complete the enrollment forms.  If you have any questions while filling out the forms, you can contact me anytime at 919-548-0229.  I will send a reminder to you if I have not received your information during the 14 day time frame.  Once your information has been completed, our journey together begins!  


Please reach out should you have any questions before or after the lottery.  Thank you!
