The Sage School’s new campus in the Quigley Farm neighborhood, at the edge of a 1,200-acre conservation easement allows the school to fully fledge the student experience with daily access to an amazing outdoor campus.
Our new campus comprises four new buildings in a local canyon. It will directly help connect our students to the place where they live by putting them in a natural setting that allows for deep exploration of our local ecosystem via our Wellness program, ecology experiments and observations, and regular excursions. The timber-frame buildings and barn style of our main building are nods to the history and culture of our valley as well.
The Quigley Campus is poised to serve Sage students and the community. For example, the kitchen serves as a classroom in which students learn culinary skills, chemistry, math, and nutrition—the space is a source of learning, service, and commerce. Beyond the school day, the kitchen might be used by a local chef or community member from The Hunger Coalition.
During the summer, the Barn Classroom will be available for community functions, while the kitchen could become available for a chef’s catering business.
Quotes about The Sage School’s Quigley Campus:
“Being able to learn in an environment that is specifically designed for the Sage School will vastly increase the meaning and purpose of everything that is taught and learned there.”~ Sage School Alumni
“The beauty of the natural world is such a part of living in this valley. It is inspiring to sit in those spaces, with the views all around. It is the opposite of a school as an institution in which little thought is given to natural daylight and spaces that inspired. What a gift to our students and faculty.”– Sage School Parent
