Life After Saklan

We offer enriched academics to feed our students' interest and to raise high school preparedness levels. Together our small class sizes, great faculty, and one-to-one attention truly capture and cultivate a students’ individual talent.


In their eighth grade Leadership Class, our Middle School Dean guides our students through the transition to high school. They discuss the application process to independent high schools as well as the assimilation to public high school. Students learn interview skills, write essays and participate in individual coaching sessions to help determine which schools to target. Parents are also invited to a High School Night hosted by the school.


Saklan graduates are well prepared, arriving in high school with their self-esteem, self-discipline, and sense of humor firmly in place. Our graduates are able to thrive in any setting they choose.
