Welcome to Sheridan School!

Sheridan’s approach to education prepares the whole child for the whole world. Each day our students and teachers engage in the kind of self directed, inquiry-based work that sets the stage for success in our ever-changing world. In response to powerful learning experiences, our students actively revise their thinking, revisit their knowledge, and construct new and more sophisticated understandings of the world around them.

We create an environment that engages children and that creates intrinsic motivation and independence, while nurturing each child’s sense of self. Leaders in the high schools our graduates attend frequently tell us that Sheridan kids have strong advocacy skills, are critical thinkers, and above all else, are really nice people.

Our website is a great window into our school. Please navigate to the pages on the left to learn about the admissions process, check our calendar of admissions events, apply online or request an admissions packet by mail. 

The best way to discover what sets Sheridan apart is by visiting. Your tour allows you to see our school in action, as you visit with our students and faculty in many of our classrooms. To schedule your visit, please click here. We look forward to getting to know you and your family.
