How to Apply

Upper School

Sanford is that school where all three of my children have grown academically, culturally, socially and in other ways we never expected. The small class sizes and close relationships with teachers allow my children to be the best students they can be. 

Visit Sanford Upper School!

A school tour is a great way for the whole family to get a feel for the Sanford experience. During the tour you will have the opportunity to explore our beautiful campus, meet our teachers, and see our students in action. 

Personal tours are available by appointment. Please call us at 302.235.6503, admission@sanfordschool.org to set one up for your family. Information regarding the application process and affordability options, including our merit scholarship programs, will be provided.

We look forward to meeting you and your family!
