At Sequoyah, students are encouraged to find their own voices, set academic goals and define a path for themselves.

In our 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 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 a senior-year internship.
