The prekindergarten program at SA is just that... PRE kindergarten, an intentional preparation for each level that follows. Children are exposed to developmentally appropriate activities, anchored by social-emotional learning and cognitive challenge, to ready them for kindergarten at The Academy.

The preschool program is open to mission-appropriate families who place a priority on education. Two screenings--a whole group experience and individual session--are part of the application process. The team assesses the ability of a student to be successful in an independent school classroom environment. Potty-training is required. Previous daycare or summer program experience is preferred.


"We meet the children where they are and guide them to where they need to be."
