    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.

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.
