Welcome to the SAGE Scholars Value Index.
SAGE Scholars is proud of the caliber of colleges and universities we have worked with over the last 25 years. These institutions attract top students from all over the country and 90% have received an "America's Best" ranking by U.S.News and World Report.
Even so, every once in a while we are asked; How good are SAGE Scholars member colleges and universities? Of course, we think our member colleges and universities are the best - but we set out to prove it.
What is the SAGE Scholars Value Index?
The SAGE Scholars Value Index was created to help students and families compare colleges based on 7 key factors. We have learned that our students and families prefer small class sizes, high 4-year graduation rate, higher career earnings, a lower loan default rate, and colleges with as stable a favorable picture as possible; a college with a high SAGE Scholars Value Index scores well on these criteria.
