Sequoyah’s modular schedule provides ample time for a rich and focused learning environment. Designed to support student engagement, individual attention and a range of course selections, the schedule also offers sufficient time within the school year for extensive field studies—real-world experiences beyond the classroom that reinforce deeper understanding of academic skills and concepts.

Seven Modules a Year

The year is divided into seven modules (“MODS”) lasting approximately five weeks each. During each MOD, a student takes three 85-minute classes per day, plus one 45-minute elective block. Nightly homework is a natural part of the project-based work done each day and is primarily focused on only three subject-areas. With this schedule, feedback can be more detailed and frequent. The modular schedule also presents increased choices for academic courses and students have more options to explore their interests and advance their studies.

One of the seven MODS each year serves as dedicated time for camping trips, social innovation projects, international expeditions and internships. In the 9th grade sample schedule below it is MOD 7.

The 9th grade schedule includes one week of new student orientation at the beginning of the school year and three-day portfolio reviews at mid-year and year-end. In subsequent years, the first week of the schedule is designated for field studies.

The Friday schedule includes All School or Grade-Level Meetings, three 45 minute blocks (A, B, C), and a 2.5 hour block for the Social Innovation Program, giving students and teachers the time to take trips off campus.
