Financial Assistance Endowments

Sage Hill School has always been committed to serving a wide range of students from a variety of backgrounds. We believe, and studies show, that having diverse viewpoints and ways of thinking are instrumental in providing the best outcomes for all of our students.

Sean McElroy '08, at left, epitomizes the Sage Hill success story.

"Sage was really the defining four years of my life. I was surrounded by interesting people who really wanted to learn and engage and be challenged inside and outside of the classroom. I can say without reservation, I would not have had the successes I have had if it weren't for the time I spent at Sage."

We have successfully achieved our mission over nearly two decades by graduating some 2,000+ exceptional young people whose Sage Hill education has laid the foundation for resounding success. But to sustain our founders’ mission over the long term, we need to continuously evolve the ways we continue to pursue our goals.

We remain steadfast in our mission to provide a transformative education comprising superior academics and personal skills development to a student body that represents the broader landscape of Orange County and our world. Sage Hill looks different today than when we first opened our doors.

Today, our focus shifts from building our facilities to nurturing the programs and people that utilize them. This initiative will preserve and build upon our founding vision, to provide access to a broad range of students from across the region, educating the whole student in an inspiring and collaborative setting. Our goal is to steadily increase the number of students who receive financial assistance via a permanent endowment that will give back to our broader community in perpetuity.
