A Message from the Director of Enrollment Management

Welcome to Sage Ridge School! I am proud to serve as the Director of Enrollment Management. I was fortunate to be part of the founding group of educators, parents and business people who felt it was imperative that there be an independent, non-sectarian, nonprofit, college preparatory school in Northern Nevada. It’s hard to believe we just celebrated our 20th year. 

I am also the proud parent of two SRS graduates who credit their career success to their years at Sage Ridge School. Our graduates receive not only a world class education but also embrace our four other pillars: Respect, Integrity, Courage and Community. Our community truly cares about students and families. It will be my pleasure to meet you and introduce you to the Sage Ridge Community.
