Help provide students with an environment where they can thrive, positively construct their identities, immerse themselves in their communities, and develop their sense of place with meaning and connection.
Friends of The Sage School,
We are in complicated, ambiguous and challenging times. There is not a sector of the globe, our country, or our communities that has not been impacted by the pandemic.
Coronavirus forced The Sage School to ask the same simple questions confronting everyone: What does this mean? What do we do now? What will the future look like?
The most powerful element of these reflections has been realizing the relevance of The Sage School and the different model of education we have created. Last spring taught us three things: 1. Sage adolescents have the skills to build what they need. 2. Our model helps create thriving communities. 3. The Sage School education is more critical now than it ever has been.
The Sage School specializes in working with teenagers; in providing them a structure, a curriculum, and a voice to actively participate in the world. Last spring, we saw the effectiveness and the resilience of our model. Students birded from their backyards, wrote articles for the newspaper about the intersection of agriculture and pandemics, created infographics for The Hunger Coalition’s clients, and competed in a local history treasure hunt. The relationships we built and the importance of the students’ work endured, despite our drastically different school day.
At this critical time for Sage and our students, I hope you will make a gift to help students understand who they are and how they can change the world.
Thank you for sharing in our vision,
Harry Weekes, Head of School
