Only Episcopal schools qualify for SAES membership, and participation in SAES activities and events provides direct networking opportunities with Episcopal school colleagues who not only represent schools richly diverse in size, location and scope, but who also understand the unique culture of this particular geographic region. Although a multi-state and nationally recognized accreditation process is a primary benefit associated with SAES, consistent support pertaining to the Episcopal Identity of member schools is at the heart of why the association exists.
I feel a camarderie among my SAES colleagues that is unique.
