The goal of our admission process is to select candidates who have a high performance capability of achieving success in our learning environment, and whose families’ expectations are consistent with the school’s philosophy and mission.

In the course of applying to The Sage School, you will gain valuable insight into your child’s learning styles, strengths, and relative weaknesses. And, regardless of the ultimate admission decision, we believe what you learn will help you discover the best way to advocate for your child’s educational needs.

We welcome qualified students and embrace diversity among our students and our staff. Our school community consists of families from a variety of racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds and family compositions. At The Sage School, differences are appreciated and frequently integrated into our classrooms through shared experiences, presentations, and celebrations.

We encourage parents to share their concerns and thoughts with us throughout the admission process.
