In their earliest school years, children begin to develop evidence based reasoning while they explore interrelated concepts. As they advance through junior high our students are guided through complex subject matter while remaining actively engaged in learning.
In the high school classrooms you will find teachers challenging students to use their growing knowledge and skills to solve essential questions at the heart of contemporary challenges—to see connections, develop meaningful relationships, and construct shared understanding.
Our high school students will develop initiative and self-direction through college preparatory coursework and field studies emphasizing global perspectives and cultural competency. Independent study and collaborative effort will culminate in a junior-year social impact project and senior-year internship.
Sequoyah’s unique four-year Social Innovation Program will provide training and opportunities for students to become emerging social entrepreneurs. The Advisory program will reinforce the development of a growth mindset, conflict resolution skills, and effective leadership.
Overall Sequoyah’s high school curriculum is designed to prepare students to graduate as experienced, confident and resourceful problem solvers, who know how to apply their knowledge and passion using strategies that can make a difference for their communities and for their own lives. Students will be challenged to think critically and creatively, learn how to work in diverse teams, and communicate ideas successfully.
Please don’t hesitate to contact High School Director Marc Alongi. He’s always ready to meet students, and their families, interested in current openings.
