"Sage Ridge provided me with a foundation of knowledge and a network of friendships from which I continue to benefit to this day. I will forever be grateful to the faculty, staff, and students of Sage Ridge for everything they have given me."
Mat Trachok (SRS '05, Yale '09, Harvard Law School '12, Senior Associate at WilmerHale)
"Sage Ridge School gave me the space to engage with curiosity. I learned to lead with curiosity instead of certainly. The start-up culture of the school taught me that if I don't know how to do something, I can figure it out, and this has been invaluable in my career."
Kristan Brown (SRS '05, Whitman College '09, MFA at Rutgers '13, Studio Manager at Terry Knickerbocker Studio in Brooklyn)
“My SRS education has played a role in my academic success in college and even in winning the Truman. Teachers like Dr. McGann and Mr. Sloyan worked wonders in terms of improving my writing skills, and I have no doubt that my Truman application stood out because of what they taught me.”
Carla Ramazan (SRS ‘17, University of Texas-Dallas '21, Truman Scholar)
"A Sage Ridge education serves as a compass to allow us to go out and navigate for ourselves in the world…Though we cannot tell them where to take us, they are essential to reach whatever destination we set for ourselves. And no matter how far we stray from our home here at SRS, they will always be with us."
William Moore (SRS '19, Haverford '23)
