Accreditation & Approvals


With so many different schools to choose from, how do you know which ones offer a quality education?  After all, you want to make sure the institution you choose is reputable and qualified to prepare you for a successful career.  One way to determine educational excellence is to make sure the school or program is accredited.

Sage School of Massage & Esthetics is accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA).  To earn COMTA accreditation, a school or program voluntarily participates in a peer review process designed to identify quality, performance and integrity in professional and educational standards in the school's administrative practices, curriculum development, student affairs, faculty competence, employer relationships, and financial stability.  The benefit of accreditation is that it assures a high standard of excellence in education and graduate success.  For more information, visit
