Welcome to SCHS Music!
To create an environment in which students' lives are enriched through the collaboration, creation, and performance of music.
We strive to cultivate a diverse community in which the exploration of music is celebrated, inspired, and empowered.
Sage Creek High School was established in 2014 in beautiful Carlsbad, CA. Our music program is small but mighty and boasts many opportunities for the appreciation, creation, performance, and better understanding of music. To further discover these opportunities, please visit our pages about the classes, clubs, and activities we offer.
Something truly unique to our school is our trimester schedule. This schedule can be very beneficial in accelerating students' schedules up to the possibility of earning 300 credits. This opens students up to take a variety of STEM classes, but can also present a challenge when trying to be consistently enrolled in music classes throughout the duration of your high school career. Rest assured, if you wish to stay in music for 12 consecutive trimesters (4 years), it is most definitely a possibility. Talk to one of our student leaders or mentors to see how they did it! If you would like to learn more about what our school has to offer you in terms of academics, athletics, and other programs, visit our School Loop Site.
Although COVID has made in-person performances temporarily impossible, we are still making music! Stay Tuned and Visit our Events & Calendar page for upcoming events!
