  • Welcome to the Sage Center

    The Hamoui Family Sage Center for Innovative Curriculum is an integral part of the student experience here at Sage Hill. The Sage Center houses signature programs carefully designed by our team to help students develop core competencies they need to become courageous and compassionate participants of local and global communities. 

    Through our programming and leadership, we offer Sage Hill students a pathway toward global education, experiential learning, service-oriented civic engagement, and more. We are committed to equipping our kids with the skills they need to be leaders of tomorrow, through intentional engagement with the world they live in today. 

    This work would not be possible without centering what we do around principles of diversity, equity and inclusion. We recognize that policy and action shape culture, and we are committed to the ongoing development of an inclusive school community in which each and every member can be their most authentic selves. 

    I welcome you all to connect with the Sage Center, and invite you to explore our work further as you navigate through our program pages.
