  • Sanford School is a private, college preparatory, coeducational day school for students in junior kindergarten through grade twelve, located in Hockessin, Delaware. Originally known as "Sunny Hills School", it was founded on September 23, 1930 by Sanford and Ellen Sawin, in memory of their eldest son Sanford Sawin, Jr. The school's name was changed to Sanford in 1966, fifty years after his death. Originally operated as a family-oriented country boarding school and farm, Sanford graduated its first class in 1937 and the next year was accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Sanford's leadership was run by a member of the Sawin family until the mid-1960s. In the mid-1970s, the school was re-organized as a full-fledged day school. In 2001, Douglas MacKelcan, Jr. announced a $10 million capital campaign to significantly improve the infrastructure of the school, renovate historic classroom buildings, and construct several new facilities. Sanford competes in interscholastic sports as a member of the Delaware Independent School Conference. They have made history by winning both girls and boys basketball State Championships in 2010 and 2011, the first school to have done so in the history of Delaware. Wikipedia
