In 1930, Sanford & Ellen Sawin founded Sanford School as an innovative school. Today, our students embody our school motto, No Talent Lies Latent. Sanford is dedicated to providing a rigorous and well-rounded college preparatory education for our students.
Our academic, co-curricular, arts, and athletic opportunities encourage students to explore their interests and grow intellectually and socially. Our teachers and coaches challenge and inspire our students to achieve their best. A cornerstone of Sanford’s culture is the belief that everyone—even people who are different than you are—has a right to be treated with courtesy and dignity. The Sanford experience provides our diverse student body with a school environment where hard work is valued, where kindness and respect are community norms, and where integrity and honesty are instilled and reinforced.
