SAC's mission is to provide an accelerated STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math) focused private education while nurturing the student as a whole in a loving and caring environment.
The Science Academy's goals are based upon the school's philosophy and an underlying respect for the individual child. Admission is open to all qualified students and is not based on race, religion, color or ethnic origin.
