National School Choice Week
National School Choice Week is January 25th-February 1st. School Choice Week recognizes all K-12 options, including all public schools, public charter schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling. School choice is important to us because it means each student can attend the school that best allows them to thrive, be challenged, and successful.

Sage Oak is thankful to be able to provide an option for personalized learning. Help us celebrate School Choice week by participating in 1 or more of the following activities:
