Sequoyah School, an independent school founded in Pasadena, California in 1958, has just opened an innovative high school program in September of 2016.

Furthermore, the high school program builds upon the changemaking work practiced in the K-8 program by offering a program for Social Innovation. Sequoyah faculty help facilitate student teams that will explore issues in the community via a design thinking process that encourages teachers and students to get off campus and spend time interacting with community members and organizations.

Students and teachers travel around California, the Southwest and Pacific Northwest to explore the natural world and engage with a variety of communities. The high school program will also offer international expeditions.
