Sage Connected Credit 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, 6/26 – 7/28, 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 and closes June 19.
