SAGE Scholars

We Make Private College Education More Affordable

SAGE Scholars is proud to be the nation's oldest and largest private college preparation and funding organization.

Our goal is to bridge the gap between students who want an affordable private college education with colleges that will guarantee tuition discounts for member families - all at no cost to the student, family or college.

Through our Tuition Rewards program, SAGE Scholars has been helping families secure the best possible private college education for over a quarter of a century.

College Consortium

There are over 400 private colleges and universities in the SAGE Scholars College Consortium, 90% of member colleges and universities have received an 'America's Best' ranking by U.S. News and World Report.

Our Foundation

SAGE Scholars was formed in 1995 by Dr. James Johnston, former Director of Admissions & Financial Aid at the Wharton Graduate School, to promote access and affordability of private higher education.

"I am very thankful for the doors that SAGE Scholars opened for me..."

"The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Program secured that I didn’t have to settle for second best, but instead gave me the opportunity to choose a college that I wanted to go to, and one where I will thrive. I am very thankful for the doors that SAGE Scholars opened for me and the excitement that surrounds me because I am going to attend the college of my dreams."
