We hope that as you scroll through the pages on our website, something resonates within you. This community is made up of engaged, joyful learners who support one another through triumphs and challenges. Saklan is a unique and personal place - the opportunities for social-emotional learning, self-reflection and growth are unparalleled. If you can see your child being successful in a school that fosters creativity, compassion, and courage, then I invite you to come learn more about Saklan.

Families interested in learning more about The Saklan School may schedule a tour with me during the school day to see our classes in action, learn about our programs, and share information. Open Houses are typically held during the admissions season and provide further opportunities to talk to our faculty and staff.  If you do choose to apply, we invite your child to visit in our classrooms as part of the admissions process. Conversations with currently enrolled families may be arranged to help you and your family make connections and find out more about the Saklan community.

The dates and timelines shown on this site are geared toward families applying for the 2020-21 school year. However, provided there are still spaces available in your grade of interest, we are happy to consider applications for a mid-year transfer.

We appreciate what an important decision it is to choose just the right school for your family and we look forward to getting to know you and your child during the application process.
