Welcome to the Sayre Admission page!  We appreciate your interest in discovering the Sayre Difference and the life-long value of a Sayre education.  With over 600 students from Preschool to 12th grade, the Sayre community brings together families from all backgrounds who want their children to excel academically in a nurturing environment that supports every aspect of their growth and development.

Our team is here to assist you with questions and next steps.  Libby Clay focuses on Preschool and grades K-4, while Jeff Oldham leads admission for Middle School (grades 5-8) and Upper School (grades 9-12) and oversees the Financial Aid process.

Prospective families are welcome to tour campus during the school day or after dismissal.  Please contact Jeff or Libby to plan a visit.  Video calls are also a great way to include faculty and division heads in getting to know you and your child. 

We look forward to connecting with your family!
