ACADEMIC YEAR 2021 - 2022

At Sostante, the world is our classroom.  Connecting students learning to real time projects and solutions that are happening all around us today, is a large part of our curriculum and philosophy.  We establish collaborations with a wide variety of topics so that our students can be exposed to the diversity that exists, and become an active part of society today.  From our collaborations, we delve into the students interests, develop themes to weave our standard core classes and objectives into, and participate in trips that bring their learning and interests to life. 


Themes, trips, and projects for this academic year, and how they will relate to the learning objectives:
