Tuition & Financial Assistance

For the 2022-2023 school year the maximum possible cost of tuition is $21,500.00 for all grades (6-12). Tuition is all-inclusive. All students participate in field studies and travel programs at no additional fee. However, The Sage School operates with a Flexible Tuition model which means we strive to set tuition based on the means of each family.

From the beginning, providing access has been a critical value and philosophy of the school. This is one reason why we adopted a Flexible Tuition model. As an independent school, tuition dollars support our work, but private donations allow the tuition to be set on an individual basis, providing access to more students regardless of financial means.

Since its founding in 2009, The Sage School has raised over $2.5 million to support broad access to the school. We believe accessibility increases diversity, creates a school with a wider range of perspectives, and augments the impact of our mission and vision – strengthening our students, our school, and our community.

The Sage School is necessarily budget conscious and recognizes that we will not be able to meet everyone’s needs. We do our best, dedicating nearly 20% of our annual operating budget to support our tuition program.

The Sage School strives to create a community that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Each family is expected to contribute to our community in many ways, with tuition being one vehicle of support. We recognize each family has different socioeconomic circumstances.

We also recognize that charging families the full cost of each student would impact access to The Sage School. The support and philanthropic generosity of our community enables us to cover the additional costs of our unique educational programming.
