    K-5th grade applicants will be asked to submit samples of a math project, writing project, and art project that your child has completed in school. We prefer to receive these materials prior to the parent and student meeting/interview.

    Prekindergarten applicants may also be asked to submit additional information so that we may better get to know your child. These requirements will be discussed during the parent interview.

    Upon submission of the application, a one-on-one meeting with a member of the teaching team and the applicant will be scheduled.

    WISC/WPPSI (optional): If your child has completed the WISC/WPPSI within the past 2 years, you can send those results to admission@saes.org. We find these assessments helpful to have a more full understanding of your child’s learning profile, but they are not required for admission. We will give equal consideration to applications with or without WISC/WPPSI results.
