Sample Schedule

We honor adolescence as a critical developmental window for learning essential academic, cognitive, skills.

The Sage School creates a thriving environment for students through a challenging, authentic curriculum centered on human ecology and engaging experiences designed specifically to promote self-awareness, community responsibility, and a sense of place.

Adolescence is the scaffolding on which we build our schedule. Our schedule is our mission, how do we best show this?
