Smith Academy for Excellence (SAFE) is a tuition-free charter school for boys designed to strategically develop elite scholars who exhibit responsibility, dignity, character, and an instinct of service.

Our school is distinctive — designed specifically to meet the existing and emerging needs of our community. As scholars are provided with quality academic and character education, they emerge from SAFE well prepared for post-secondary education and equipped to be high-quality, well-rounded citizens who are primed to affect positive change in their community.​

The SAFE Experience

"Teachers and admins are caring yet hold high expectations for behavior and academics. The mission of the school is defined and worked toward consistently."


- Parent of a SAFE Scholar

"[I like] the sense of brotherhood and knowing that the teachers and staff will work with me and my children to make sure they succeed."
