  • For Lifelong Brilliance

Sage Hill’s small, seminar-style classes create a student-centered, discussion based learning environment. Students discover new areas of study that fascinate and inspire or delve into existing curiosities with renewed interest.

While mapping out your academic journey, our innovative curriculum provides you with flexibility and choice. The wealth of courses offered and the exciting electives across all disciplines cannot be found anywhere else. With more than 35 AP, Honors, and post-AP courses, we offer ample opportunities for students to challenge themselves with college-level work.

Our academic program differentiates our students in the college admissions process and prepares them for what awaits in the future.

A World-Class Faculty

The deep commitment of experienced and caring teachers is one of Sage Hill’s greatest treasures. Scholars, writers, artists, and researchers in their own right, our skilled faculty love teaching and inspire that same devotion to learning in their students. They take the time to discover the right approach for each student; caring for the individual, giving the support and tools everyone needs to succeed. Our faculty help students grow through challenges, and develop self-confidence.
