Sage Session

Every May, Sage Ridge students experience Sage Session, a two-week period when students participate in elective and enrichment classes taught by Sage Ridge faculty. These courses enhance the students’ academic experience and our core curriculum. In Sage Sessions...

  • Students are able to learn from faculty from whom they may not normally have class
  • Students are able to choose their courses based on their interests
  • Students have a chance to hone learning skills in a new and dynamic environment
  • Students get to see teachers excited about teaching a course in which they have an outside interest
  • Teachers have an opportunity to share their knowledge and skills about a subject they might not typically teach at SRS
