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. We provide many different kinds of learning opportunities, enabling our students to investigate connections across subjects, and between the classroom and the real world.


Act Compassionately
Just as important as thinking creatively is viewing life from another’s perspective. Our nurturing school community encourages students to look beyond themselves and act. Community service projects begin in PreK and are a vital part of our program that serves our students for life.


Live Courageously
Learning at Saklan is more than academic. Our get your hands dirty, no fear, run with your ideas, do your best, respect yourself and others' philosophy empowers our students to lead a meaningful life. We teach courage!
