Our Mission


Our mission is to challenge students to think creatively, act compassionately, and live courageously.


Think Creatively
Take risks, make mistakes, and become a brilliant problem solver in the process. We challenge our students to think in new ways by providing many different kinds of learning opportunities to investigate connections across subjects, among themselves, and between the classroom and the real world.


Act Compassionately
Just as important as thinking creatively is viewing life from another’s perspective. A close-knit school community provides the human scale in which students are encouraged to look beyond themselves, and then act on it. Community service projects begin in PreK and are a vital part of our program that also end up serving our students for life.


Live Courageously
Learning at Saklan is more than academic. It is get your hands dirty, take an idea and run with it, no fear, do your best, respect yourself and others' education that connects the classroom to the way you live your life.
