Peak Week

Beyond the Classroom

Sierra Canyon’s Peak Week program was founded in the 2005-06 school year to allow our students to immerse themselves in a subject, project, or environment to which they would not normally have access as part of our regular curriculum. Since its inception, Peak Week has become one of the highlights of a Sierra Canyon education, and each year we have been able to offer an ever-expanding array of offerings from the worlds of science, history, arts, and beyond.
