We are Connected

In our Connections programs, students explore the web of connections that exist between themselves and others. 
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”― Herman Melville

Health & Wellness

Connection to Self

The Connections Health & Wellness program is designed to inform, challenge, and support students in their ethical and personal decision making. Students grapple with complex health and moral issues and gain the skills and resources necessary to make informed and responsible choices for themselves. Freshmen receive mentorship from seniors who have been trained to be Health & Wellness Teaching Assistants.

The curriculum addresses mental health, stress management, sleep, nutrition, drugs and alcohol, conflict resolution, friendship, questions of identity, digital citizenship, communication skills, gender roles and gender fluidity, and body image. Ninth graders also engage in our Belonging curriculum, which foster a senses of connection to the SA community for our newest members. 10th-12th grade students also engage in Health & Wellness workshops throughout the year.

Impact projects range fighting climate change to volunteering with local elementary schoolchildren to creating school publications; stuents are encouraged to seek out projects that are meaningful to them. give students the opportunity to work on issues of importance to them, learn real-world skills, and give back to others.
