In January, the Sage Hill Admissions team hosted its first-ever STEAM at Sage night for prospective families for the 2022-2023 school year. Due to COVID, the event was moved online, but that did not stop Sage Hill from showcasing its STEAM curriculum and the opportunities to get involved in it on campus. After the Athletic Department and Admission team’s joint success in hosting Sage’s first Athletic Information Night in December, showcasing academics in a similar way seemed fitting. 

STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. These are subjects Sage takes pride in implementing everywhere on campus; they are concepts that are highlighted during Sage admissions tours. 

During STEAM night, Mr. Jordan, Director of Admission & Financial Aid, hosted a webinar that covered three core topics: Robotics and Engineering, the Arts, and the Sciences, all of which were led by faculty from each department. 

There was a great turnout for this Zoom event as it was highly attended by prospective families – parents and students,” said Leyla Hanjan, Associate Director of Admission and Financial Aid. “Each session was led by our faculty who were able to describe programs as well as showcase projects and state of the art spaces.” 

To enhance all that Sage has to offer to prospective families, Hanjan said that “In between the three sessions were mini sessions which highlighted the 9th-grade experience and Clubs, Student Life, and College Counseling.” 

All in all, the first-ever STEAM night was a success and will hopefully be hosted in-person in upcoming years.
