That’s what makes Sanford so special—and what makes me so proud to be part of this creative, inclusive community.
Here at Sanford, we value each student for who you are, what you love, and what you want to achieve. It’s this individual acceptance and support that make our school family diverse in its talents and exceptional in its achievements.
Beyond our 100% college acceptance rate, our 8:1 student-to-teacher ratio, and our demanding yet innovative academics, Sanford is truly a place to be yourself, express yourself, and challenge yourself.
- Our safe community is made up of happy, healthy achievers who live by our Honor Code and champion each other’s successes.
- Our outstanding college-preparatory curriculum and stellar faculty challenge students to broaden their ambitions, take risks, set higher standards, and develop lifelong habits for achievement.
- Our award-winning arts and strong athletics programs empower students to tap into their talents and boldly pursue their own excellence with no fear of judgment.
- Our stunning, college-like campus offers the ultimate physical space for learning, both in and out of the classroom, while fostering self-reliance and independence.
WHEN WE SAY “NO TALENT LIES LATENT” AT SANFORD, WE MEAN IT.
It’s why our families consistently report that their children are thriving, responding to challenges to do their best, and achieving success.
It’s why our graduates return to us year after year with tales about how they taught their dorm floor how to write a term paper or how a professor displayed their work as examples. Or even, decades later, telling us that “even after graduate school, it’s been my opinion that the most education I’ve received in life came from my time at Sanford.”
It’s why, once you’re a Sanford student, you’re always a Sanford student. And it’s why I hope that soon you, too, find yourself at Sanford.
