Secondary School Placement

DSC 5460 300x199 Secondary School PlacementGraduates from The Sage School move on to a variety of schools for ninth grade: public and private, boarding and day, co-ed and single sex, urban and suburban. Living in the greater Boston area, we have the benefit of being surrounded by a multitude of independent, public, and parochial school options – some of the most competitive in the country. Some families hear this and may already begin to feel overwhelmed. On the other hand, at Sage, we encourage students and families to maintain their perspective, looking instead at the numerous doors that may lay in front of them. We believe the key is in the right “fit.” It’s not only about the amenities, or the college acceptance rates at certain schools, or names. While these things rightfully have their place, and will inevitably have some degree of influence, at its core, the process and choice are about fit. All schools have a unique environment. Finding the environment that “clicks” for your family is the key to finding the school that will bring out the best in your son or daughter. That, balanced with factors such as appropriate academic rigor, structure, or extracurriculars, leads to happy students.
