Tuition & Financial Aid
At Sage Ridge School, we believe education is the best investment for a child’s future.
We strive to make our unparalleled program as financially accessible as possible to all those families for whom our mission and programs are an ideal fit. Sage Ridge School is committed to being an inclusive community with a student body that reflects a broad economic and social mix with a diversity of interests, talents, backgrounds, and levels of involvement beyond the classroom. We believe no qualified student should be deterred by financial circumstances from applying to Sage Ridge. We offer families who feel they need assistance the opportunity to apply for aid.
We recognize that this is a major investment in your child’s education and future. To assist families in affording this educational choice, we offer payment options, and families who feel they need financial assistance should apply for financial aid by January.
Tuition payments can be made in installments or upfront. Payments by installment are managed by Blackbaud Tuition Management and families who opt for installments are required to purchase tuition insurance. Tuition insurance is available to all families.

In determining need, the guidelines of Blackbaud Financial Aid Management, an organization used by independent schools nationwide, are followed. Families who miss the deadlines for the financial aid application, or who do not return the re-enrollment contract with the deposit by the specified deadline, risk losing their award.
It is important to note that admissions decisions and financial aid awards are decided separately and that all financial aid information is strictly confidential.
The Blackbaud Financial Aid Management financial aid application must be completed each year that financial aid is requested.
To apply for financial aid, complete the application online by logging into Blackbaud Financial Aid Management. Prospective families will need to create a Blackbaud account and should apply for admissions simultaneously.
Financial aid is awarded as funds allow on a first come, first served basis. Acceptance at Sage Ridge School does not guarantee financial aid.
