Our District Programs

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.
