Sage Connected Credit Classes

Virtual Learning

List of 1 items.

  • Flexible Hybrid Classes

Sage Connected combines a flexible high school online environment with periodic campus visits for assessments and group work. Sage Hill students who successfully complete a Sage Connected course receive graduation credit on their transcript as well as a letter grade that will be incorporated into their GPA (students from other high schools must confirm their own school’s credit requirements). All Sage Connected classes meet virtually for five weeks, from June 24 to July 26, with various on-campus meeting times. See below for course descriptions for meeting days and times.

Please note that credit classes taken while a student is in grades 6-8 will not apply toward Sage Hill’s graduation requirements if that student ends up attending the School.

Registration begins on March 1, 2024.

Textbooks
Sage Hill School partners with Follett Virtual Campus as our official textbook provider. Textbook information for summer credit classes will be available on May 22. Please check back for more information.
