Students and the World

A Sterne education isn’t contained within the classroom walls.  Our academic calendar includes days and weeks devoted to national and international experiential trips, language immersion programs, and service learning opportunities.  Our 12th-grade Passages Program places each student in an off-campus internship, college course, or job as part of their preparation for graduation.  

As we continue to develop our facilities, we also look for ways to turn our limits into our opportunities. Our Arts faculty have developed a thrilling series of showcases, leveraging some of San Francisco’s most iconic venues, from the Roxie Cinema to the historic Mediterranean-style tower of the San Francisco Art Institute, giving our student artists the chance to show their work on a real-life-sized stage.

We also seize every opportunity to bring the world into Sterne.  Performances by visiting artists, lectures by community leaders, Career Day, and alumni panels are just a few of the ways we invite students to learn about the many options that await them outside.
