We go above and beyond in our approach to teaching and learning, strategic use of technology, student support, fieldwork, etc. but we are not funded differently than traditional public schools. Launching a new high school that will engage students in real world, rigorous ways takes hard work, brilliant ideas, and extra funding!

We ask all families to consider an annual fieldwork donation of $350 to help us make the above and beyond experiences a reality for all our students. If it can't happen, we understand and all students have access to fieldwork and gear to make it happen. Some families give more to help support fieldwork for all.
SAEL values the creation of true community partnerships. Our students are asked to step outside of the traditional classroom to be challenged through hands on experiences, field work, and service learning. We are eager to break down the barriers of our school walls to extend our learning into the real world. If you are interested in exploring partnership opportunities with us, please reach out. Current partnerships include SYRCL, BYLT, Sierra Streams Institute, Gold Crush Climbing Gym, GVCS, and Common Vision.
