Application Process

How to Apply to The Sage School

Our History

Our approach to learning is unique. We focus on growth, not grades. We value multiple ways of knowing the world and oneself. Our application requires parents and students to reflect meaningfully on their desires and goals for education.

We offer rolling admissions if space is available in any class. We welcome visitors during the year, and applications for the following year are typically due in early March (specific details below).

We suggest that applicants come to The Sage School to meet with teachers before applying. After an initial interview, the applicant may be invited for a classroom visit, during which they spend a full school day engaging with and getting to know teachers, other students, and the Sage rhythm. These classroom visits allow the applicant to experience a day as a Sage student and allows us to get to know the applicant. During the visit, applicants participate in an informal interview with a member of the staff.

From application to visitation, the admissions process is designed for us to get to know each applicant, and for each applying family to get to know our approach well. We welcome your interest in Sage.

Students will be admitted from the waitpool as space allows and in the order committee determines best fits for the school.
