Curriculum Scope and Sequence

The name SĀHGE Academy defines our curriculum: Science. Arts. History. Government. Economics. Lessons are designed and modified as needed to accommodate beginner through advanced level learners. Our educators empower students intellectually, socially and emotionally to accomplish goals for civic engagement and to create value in the world for economic success. And parents actively join us to collaborate, co-teach, share and learn in tandem! We adhere to the connected learning model and culturally-relevant pedagogy.

De-colonized. Liberated. Anti-Oppressive.

These adjectives are popularly used, especially by equity and inclusion advocates and BIPOC homeschoolers, to describe an ideal education in a new world born from a pandemic.

SĀHGE Academy proudly endorses these ideas, because they align with the values of our own indigenous family of color (IFOC™).

Established in 2019, SĀHGE Academy is the premier alternative to traditional schooling for other IFOCs and allies. We are intentionally, creatively and harmoniously disrupting and reimagining education. 

From who is at the center of instruction to the narrative presentation of course materials, SĀHGE Academy promises to be different. One significant area of distinction is in our curriculum sequence. 

SĀHGE educators are experienced in differentiating lessons so that they’re learner-centered and directed and peer-supported. Our pedagogy embeds assessment in instruction and weighs it against benchmarks and portfolios.

Beginner’s Mind™

Students with a “beginner” level of learning are traditionally identified as eighth or ninth graders or “below-level” in traditional curricula. 

SĀHGE Academy identifies the phrase Beginner’s Mind to also include adults who believe learning never ends!

Intermediate Mind™

Intermediate students may be identified as tenth and eleventh graders and adults who’ve acquired fundamental knowledge and key skills in the subjects studied. 

Lessons build upon prior knowledge and allow for the integration and application of new concepts and skills.

Advanced Mind™

Advanced learners are high school seniors, high-achieving students on an accelerated course track and adults. 

At this level, students gain knowledge of the history and law imbedded in subjects studied; are supported in civic engagement and economic goals; and may be prepared for testing and dual enrollment.

COURSE OFFERINGS

Arts

American Language and World Literature Literature offers the second-best awareness of cultures after travel! Adequate and fulfilling personal, social, intellectual and civic engagement is dependent upon knowing one’s self first and then seeking understanding of others. Students will study literary contributions from around the world to foster this understanding, while gaining critical skillsets in textual analysis, logic, writing and oral communication.

Civics

Learn how your local and state governments are created to operate and their purpose, and understand the purpose and functions of federal government. Experiential life tasks encourage community and civic engagement and empower students academically.

Financial Literacy

Learn the skillset needed to handle your financial affairs. The Course introduces the fundamentals of banking, saving, budgeting, and investing. It advances students through consumer law, insurance, estate planning, and business development.
