We are SACS

Admin Building

The Southwest Allen County School District (SACS) is an award-winning school corporation that serves more than 7,800 students.

Our Mission
Preparing today's learners for tomorrow's opportunities.

Our Guiding Principles and Beliefs
We believe parents are the first and essential teachers of their children.

We believe it is our role to serve as the hub of our diverse community. We serve as professional educators, providing consultation and partnership with parents. We serve as more experienced co-learners, providing wisdom and guidance for our students. And we serve as an educational workplace of choice, providing support and opportunities for our employees.

We believe a culture of learning embraces change, flexibility, and innovation. We believe learning is neither bound by place nor time and must be appropriate and accessible to all learners. We believe learners will experience the joy of learning and working in a safe and secure educational environment.

We believe learning encompasses critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, citizenship, digital literacy, perseverance, and resiliency.

We Are Committed
Southwest Allen County Schools is home to dedicated staff, passionate teachers, and a generous community that values and supports education. We are focused in our efforts and do our best for girls and boys each and every day. We lead by example. We value hard work, attention to craft, tenacity, and resiliency in ourselves and in our students. 

We Are Collaborative
Southwest Allen County Schools is a place that values learning and community. We ask questions, share ideas, and work together to find new ways to do new things—great things—for our students, for our district, and for our community.

We Are Innovative
We are an innovative school district. Our standards are high, and our performance often exceeds. We have been recognized both locally and nationally for our award-winning programs, students, and staff. We celebrate this achievement but never stop asking how we can be better and do better for our students, our staff, and our community.

Our Goals
In order to build upon a history of successful academic achievement in every school and in every classroom, SACS will:

  • implement its own district learner accountability measures for its graduate outcomes,
  • motivate by providing a learner-centered environment accessible to all,
  • recruit and retain valuable employees,
  • broaden our partnership with parents,
  • and develop district branding that invites partnerships:
  • to increase awareness and involvement;
  • to create educational opportunities;
  • and to identify new funding sources.
