Food at SEI


Students study on a safe, welcoming campus

At SEI, the safety of each student is always our #1 priority. The SEI campus is an extremely safe campus with gates around the perimeter of the campus. There is only one main entrance monitored by campus safety 24 hours a day. Since SEI began in 2011, we have never had an incident where a student was ever in any danger or harm. We proactively train our staff to always make safety the top priority during SEI.

Parents – we know the safety of your son or daughter is extremely important to you. If you have any questions about safety at SEI, please do not hesitate to contact us.
