Students are our focus at Sage Ridge, a unique, private, college preparatory school and educational opportunity in Reno, Nevada. Begin your child's private prep school application today.

Making the decision about where to send your child to school is one of the hardest decisions parents face today. We live in an increasingly competitive world clouded by educational fads and ever-changing declarations on the benefits of certain types of schools, tests, and standards. At Sage Ridge School, we believe in educating children for the future by instilling in them the fundamentals of critical thinking, writing, and problem-solving skills both in the classroom and during co-curricular activities. Moreover, we prepare students for college while embracing their creativity and passions.

Our students come from various backgrounds and schools. Sage Ridge is a co-educational, middle school and upper school Grades 4-12, college preparatory independent school that seeks to provide both a rigorous academic curriculum and a diverse co-curricular program.  We strive to reflect the greater Reno, Nevada community and are looking for students who are willing to stretch and challenge themselves academically. Sage Ridge seeks students who are willing to be involved in our school community and who also have interests outside the school. We want students who, along with their parents, support our college preparatory school’s mission and our Value Pillars of Respect, Integrity, Community, Courage, and Scholarship.

Every applicant has something to contribute to Sage Ridge School and we wish we could accept each one. To select our students, we look at the application materials and consider each child carefully by looking at the applicant pool to make the best decision for the applicant, grade level, and school. Our goal is to find the right fit for both the school and the student. We seek students of all faiths, races, creeds, colors, and national origins. Sage Ridge School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, national or ethnic origin.
