Sustainable Agriculture & Green Energy (SAGE) Pathway

Is the SAGE Pathway Right for Me?

Offered at Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice, the Sustainable Agriculture & Green Energy (SAGE) pathway attracts students from across the Denver metro area. SAGE is a truly unique program that provides hands-on, project-based learning to introduce students to the exciting and ever-growing worlds of sustainable urban agriculture and green energy.

A combination of science, math, business, art, engineering, and design, SAGE is a strong fit for students interested in exploring careers in agriculture, architecture, business, renewable energy, engineering, construction, and veterinary medicine. SAGE is also an excellent opportunity for students who are simply interested in learning about hydroponics and aquaponics, and the ever-popular farm-to-table operations such as raising backyard chickens, composting, community gardening, and bee-keeping. SAGE students gain knowledge and skill sets that can be used for the rest of their professional and/or personal lives.

SAGE students will participate in field experiences, including the designing, budgeting and construction of projects of their choice. Students are leaders in their learning, owning their projects from start to finish and developing every aspect of their project, including business models, budgets, design, material selection, and construction. Students strengthen their problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills. The Englewood Schools SAGE pathway has strong community and business partners that provide students with expert advice and direction, and donated materials and supplies.
