  • 9th Grade

    The ninth grade experience is centered around developing a deeper understanding of communities around us through a lens of cross-cultural competency, equity and justice. While the ninth grade rotations prioritize the learning aspect of Service Learning, we feel it important to cultivate community awareness that will serve as a basis for more meaningful service learning in later years. This will be facilitated through the curriculum in the Patterns of Civilization course. Students participate in six thematic rotations throughout Orange County to teach them about environmental impact/sustainability, homelessness, education, the judicial/legal system, migration/immigration, gentrification, cultural and historical preservation, mental health, native land history, food insecurity and more.
  • 10th Grade

    Sage Hill 10th graders partner with fourth grade students from partner schools El Sol Academy, Edward B. Cole Academy, and Scholarship Prep. Facilitated through curriculum in our students' English II classes, Sage Hill students create and implement projects and activities focusing on the Six Cs, STEM challenges, identity and literacy work. As the year progresses and each 10th grader gets to know their fourth grade buddy better, they gain more autonomy and independence over creating tailored and customized plans. The program culminates with a celebration.
  • 11th & 12th Grade

    Built upon the foundational and diverse experiences in their first two years of Service Learning, 11th and 12th grade students are equipped to pursue more distinct opportunities that reflect their areas of interest. Juniors and seniors may propose student-led independent projects (IPs) or join an existing faculty/staff-led project (FLPs). Many projects tie in to Sage Center Designated courses as an attached experience.
