Sarah Wayne Callies was born on June 1, 1977 in La Grange, Illinois as Sarah Anne Callies to two university professors. Callies and her family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii when she was one year old. Raised in Honolulu, Callies graduated from Punahou School in 1995. After graduation, she moved to Hanover, New Hampshire, where she studied at Dartmouth College. Throughout college, Callies was continually involved in theatrical productions and eventually graduated with an undergraduate emphasis in Feminist Studies and a Senior Fellowship in Indigenous Studies in 1999.
