Tour the New Lower School

Welcome to the Admission Office home page. We appreciate your interest in applying to Sayre and joining our school community. Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision, so thank you for considering the outstanding education Sayre has to offer.

Our goal is to provide responsive, personalized assistance that focuses on what matters most to you and your child. Mrs. Prewitt, Mrs. Wellman and I will do everything we can to make the Sayre admission process a great experience for your family.

I came to Sayre after seven years as director of admission at an independent school outside Chicago. My family moved to Lexington in June 2012, and in addition to my professional role at Sayre, I also have children in the Lower and Middle School. 

The admission process is outlined below, but I want to emphasize the value of visiting in person to truly understand The Sayre Difference. When you are here on campus, you will know if this is the right place for your child and your family.

We look forward to meeting you!

- Mr. Oldham
