The Sage School was founded on the simple premise that how we educate our children determines the fate of the world.
By the end of the first two weeks, I felt like I had known everyone my whole life.– current student
As an independent school for grades 6-12, we recognize that adolescence is a critical development window for learning essential academic, cognitive, social, and emotional skills. We provide students with an environment where they can positively construct their identities, immerse themselves in their communities, and develop their sense of place with meaning and connection.
We are intentionally small, enrolling approximately 100 students in our 6-12 grade program.
We encourage you to begin the admission process in January prior to your child’s first year with us at Sage. This allows adequate time to visit our Open House, Take a Personal Tour, Join us for a School Visit Day, and Explore Your Financial Commitments.
Help us get to know you. Your first step is reaching out to Chris McAvoy, our Head of Admissions and Assistant Head of School. Give him a call at 208-788- 0120 or Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions and conversation are always welcome.

Let Us Introduce Ourselves
We honor adolescence as a critical developmental window for learning essential academic, cognitive, social, and emotional skills.
The Sage School is a thriving environment for students providing a challenging, authentic curriculum, centered on human ecology and engaging experiences designed specifically to promote self-awareness, community responsibility, and a sense of place.
Founded in the late spring of 2009, The Sage School opened with 16 students in grades 8 through 12 in September of that year. Since then, the school has grown to serve students across grades 6 through 12.
Fall of 2022 we opened our new campus nestled in the foothills of Quigley Canyon, to accommodate our continued growth and experiential learning in a place built just for us and our unique approach to learning.
The Sage School is a fully accredited member of the Northwest Association of Independent Schools. NWAIS is dedicated to guiding our ongoing improvement and advancing independent school education.
