Our Story

In 2008, a former director of special services at a Bergen County public school approached Sage to explore whether there might be a way of importing Sage Day’s in-depth therapeutic services from our private special education schools into a public school setting. We recognized two critical needs: supporting those students who were on the cusp of being placed out of district and providing a smooth transition for those students who were thriving out-of-district and could potentially transition back to district.

As we launched our Sage Thrive programs, the benefits became clear to students, their families and their school districts.

Today we are running many successful Sage Thrive programs throughout New Jersey and we are continuously expanding.
