SAGE HILL SCHOOL
Located in Southern California, this school used Alaskan Yellow Cedar for its arbored walkways. Select appearance yellow cedar ( which is a knotty appearance grade) from Bear Creek Lumber. You can see the exterior portions were not stained or painted, and weathered to a natural light grey. The interior portions are still vibrantly yellow.
About Sage Hill School: www.sagehillschool.org
Sage Hill School provides a unique high school experience, and for that reason students who come to Sage Hill School are here primarily because they recognize that they have something to add to our community as well as much to gain from it. As result, members of the Sage Hill School community feel a genuine sense of belonging. With class sizes averaging around 15 students, Sage Hill fosters an environment of interaction,
creativity, diversity of thought, and critical thinking. Students are drawn to Sage Hill School for the numerous
opportunities to participate and develop.
Sage Hill students have the opportunity to discover
and explore areas they are passionate about outside
of the classroom – athletics, fine arts, performing arts,
clubs, student government and leadership, or community
service. Each student is encouraged to try new ventures
and discover their individuality and talents ; students may
write a play that is performed by classmates, try out for
a sport in which they may have only a small amount of
experience, participate on the mock trial team, or create
a non-profit charitable foundation. Learning at Sage Hill
School may also take place in the community. The integrated Service Learning program enables every student
to perform off-campus service projects related to their
academic coursework during eight school days throughout
the year. Sage Hill students also look toward the future.
Students at Sage Hill experience a personal, and
thorough college counseling process. The ninth and tenth
grades at Sage Hill focus on academic achievement and
engagement, both of which will later support college
planning. During the eleventh grade, our experienced college counselors work closely and individually with each
student to know and understand each and every one.
The goal of college counseling at Sage Hill is
not simply for our students to be admitted
to the college of their choice, but to make
an informed choice.
