Frequently Asked Admission Questions During COVID-19
Although The Sage School building is currently closed to classes through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, we are able to do individual family tours while adhering to the current safety guidelines. Email the Admission Office to schedule a tour. Virtual tours will also be available on the website soon so that families can peek inside Sage classrooms as well as see typical classes in action.
Yes, we are still accepting applications for the 2020-2021! Once the online application is complete, we will schedule time for the applicant to visit virtual classes at their current grade level. Over the summer, applicants will visit in our virtual camp sessions. They will also meet virtually with a teacher (or two for Grades 5-8) to participate in some assessments.
The teacher recommendation form (below) as well as the latest report card or transcript are still required.
• Teacher recommendation form for Beginners and Pre-K applicants (if currently in a program)
• Teacher recommendation form for Kindergarten and Grade 1 applicants
• Teacher recommendation form for Grades 2-5 applicants
• Math Teacher recommendation form for Grades 6-8 applicants
• English Teacher recommendation form for Grades 6-8 applicants
Absolutely – we will be contacting you to continue the process, at wherever that point in the process that may be. Applicants are participating in virtual classes and meeting virtually with teachers to participate in assessments. We ask that you still request teacher recommendations from your child’s current teacher, as most students are in contact with them. If their school’s office is closed, you can share their most recent report card with us directly.

Although our school is closed, we are able to individually administer the ISEE test at this time. We also accept recent WISC, WPPSI, MCAS, and SSAT scores in place of the ISEE.
Our virtual program this spring included a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Students at all levels met daily with their teachers. Parents, students, and teachers were surveyed after the first three weeks of remote learning and slight changes were made to the schedule based on community feedback. While we plan to welcome students back to campus this fall, we are confident that we will maintain continuity of education in 2020-2021 should we need to return to remote learning. Learn about our virtual education plans here.
We hold virtual admission events each week. Reach out to the Admission Office for more information if you are interested in connecting with the Head of School, members of the Academic Leadership Team, or faculty and staff who work in specific areas of the school.
