Sequoyah School, an independent school founded in Pasadena, California in 1958, recently opened an innovative high school program in September of 2016. As an extension of our K-8 program, students are guided through the deep intellectual exploration of content following a student-centered, problem-based pedagogy that offers relevant contexts for exploration and opportunities for application. Furthermore, the high school program builds upon the changemaking work practiced in the K-8 program by offering a program for Social Innovation. Finally, field studies is a hallmark of a Sequoyah education. Students and teachers travel around California, the Southwest and Pacific Northwest and Latin America to explore the natural world and engage with a variety of communities. The high school program also offers international expeditions.
