College & Career Readiness

 Image result for college and career readiness

College and career readiness requires students to know more than just content. Students must also be prepared to demonstrate what they have learned, how they have learned, and be able to problem solve. Students must develop excellent communication skills and learn to work collaboratively in an educational and/or work environment. At Sage International, we focus not only on our students' high school success, but on fostering lifelong learners well prepared for college and/or career success.
