Hello, and thank you for your interest in The Saklan School! We are happy that your search for a school has brought you to our website. The admissions season for the 2024-25 school year officially begins in October. If you are looking for placement for your child for the current school year, please inquire as soon as possible. We have limited openings in Kindergarten - eighth grade; please note that our preschool and Pre-K programs are completely full.


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. We hope that as you watch the videos and scroll through the pages on our website, you will notice that this community is made up of engaged, joyful learners who support one another through triumphs and challenges.


If you do choose to apply, we invite your child to spend a day in the classroom 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.


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 we invite you to learn more about Saklan.

We appreciate what an important decision it is to choose the right school for your family, and we look forward to getting to know you and your child during the application process. We are available to talk or email with you to answer any questions you may have. 

We look forward to getting to know your family.
