Admission Process

Our admission process is dynamic in nature, allowing us to respond directly to the needs of each family. The Sage School offers rolling admission, accepting applications throughout the year. Placement is based on academic fit and availability. A few key points:

  • Prior to scheduling a visit day for your child, we do require a completed application.
  • Prior to formal admission, we require submission of all paperwork.

The most common process is as follows:

2.  Complete your Admission Packet (by January 15th for traditional cycle – not rolling admission process). Applications received after the January 15, 2017 deadline will be considered only after initial decisions are made in March and on a space-available basis.
