Sage Ridge Scholar Program

The Sage Ridge Scholars program transforms the lives of hard-working Upper School students with the gift of a full four-year scholarship. 


The Sage Ridge Scholars program was established in 2000 with support from the Redfield Foundation and other generous donors. Since the inception of the program, Sage Ridge has supported 20 Sage Ridge Scholars.


Sage Ridge Scholars are high-achieving, mission-appropriate students from socioeconomically diverse backgrounds. A Sage Ridge Scholar is a student with a desire and passion to excel in a college-prep, rigorous academic environment. Potential candidates may come to the school’s attention through a variety of channels: the student may apply directly to the school or students may come to the attention of our Director of Enrollment Management through the community.

Sage Ridge changed my life. This school motivated me and allowed me to be the first generation in my family to attend college. The small school environment at SRS is something that truly allows you to connect with others and it has been a blessing to have.

Sage Ridge Scholar Alumni Story

Luis Martinez, Class of 2013

The Sage Ridge Scholar Program and the Opportunity Fund enabled Martinez to attend Sage Ridge School.

Luis Martinez ('13) completed the PharmD program at Pacific University earning a Doctorate of Pharmacy and now works at the Community Health Alliance where he hopes to help them achieve their target of providing quality, affordable and comprehensive health services to all.

"Sage Ridge provided me with a transformative experience, and I remain committed to helping my community in some of the ways that I myself was assisted.

I left Sage Ridge committed to doing my best work at the highest level while ensuring that I do what is right. Integrity is my truth: when I am providing my best work, I am being true to myself.”
