With the expectations of colleges in mind, the senior year at Sage Ridge School has become a rite of passage.
Both academically and socially, the expectations on seniors, in some ways, resemble the expectations that colleges will have for them. However, we pair these new expectations with the support that high school students need, ensuring that they are able to successfully navigate the transition.
There are four parts to the academic program: Senior Seminar, Senior Thesis, the Research Symposium, and the Senior Internship. Combined with our regular curriculum and courses, these four aspects of the senior academic experience let students practice writing, conversing, researching, and presenting at a college level. Seniors graduate ready for college-level work.
Socially, we also put our seniors through leadership training so that they are ready to transform their college communities. As seniors, they are the leaders of the school. We work with them throughout the year to help them make positive changes to their environment, teaching them skills they can carry to college and the world afterwards.
The Senior Experience at Sage Ridge School eases the transition from high school to college so that our graduates are as ready for success as possible.
