Community Impact Projects
Connection to Community
Our Impact Projects give students the opportunity to work on issues of importance to them, learn real-world skills, and give back to others.
These projects allow our students to have an impact on their communities: the Sonoma Academy community, the local community, and the global community. Students are encouraged to seek out projects that are meaningful to them. They can choose an existing Impact project, or develop and co-lead a project under the guidance of a staffulty member.
This year's projects range in scope from the school level to the planetary level. Students are fighting climate change, pollution, and deforestation; teaching art, music, and robotics to local elementary school children; delving into issues of race, class, and gender; creating school publications like the newspaper and yearbook; volunteering at shelters for the unhoused, and more.
