Head's Welcome

Hello and welcome!

As Head of School at Sage Ridge, I want our Sage Ridge community to adopt our vision, “To Inspire Passion and Purpose through the Joy of Learning.” We are the only non-sectarian, non-profit independent school in Northern Nevada, with an unwavering focus on academics, rooted in the mission-critical pillars of Scholarship, Respect, Integrity, Courage, and Community and we equip students with a solid foundation in liberal arts and STEAM disciplines. Our goal is to focus on offering each student the opportunity to grow as a whole child as they pursue opportunities to become leaders in our world. 

There are so many exciting opportunities, events and initiatives at Sage Ridge School, and I know you’ll want to be a part of this community. This is an incredible learning environment for children, and there is no greater gift for a child than an excellent education: the ability to think critically and creatively combined with a love of lifelong learning will enable the student to be successful no matter their eventual life path. As Margaret Mead put it, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”  Together we can make the difference for all our students here at Sage Ridge!
