What we are asking you to do: Come out to support Sac High and PS7’s charter renewal efforts as we go before the SCUSD school board for our public hearing. Every five years a charter school must have its charter renewed and this is our year! We are hoping to fill the SCUSD board room with students, families and staff as we ask the school board to renew our charters for five more years.

This Pathway is designed to introduce scholars to the world of visual communications, computer graphics and digital multimedia. Scholars use technology and understand its practical applications in education, industry, art and science. With state of the art hardware and software, students have an opportunity to create a wide array of graphic design and multimedia projects.
The Business pathway is designed to introduce and prepare scholars to the world of business and finance. Scholars will learn about personal financial literacy, the fundamentals of business, and develop real world experience by simulating a small on campus business. They will also have the opportunity to participate in business competition events at the local, state, and national levels that are held throughout the year.
The Law and Public Service Pathway provides the knowledge and understanding for scholars to actively influence decisions that have an impact on social justice. Scholars have an opportunity to learn, understand, and participate in the creation and enforcement of civil and criminal laws. Scholars will acquire a fundamental understanding of the law, and then develop the skills necessary to advocate and influence those in power.
The purpose of this program is to provide scholars access to the historical and cultural context to art. We focus on the study of art history, the elements & principles of design and how they relate to each other in a composition. The program begins with drawing and studies in value, shape and form, and then builds on this foundation to color and texture, and rules of composition. Scholars will gain experience in a variety of media such as graphite, color pencil, pastel, clay, collage and mixed media.
In the photography pathway, scholars will learn how to use a camera to create powerful works of art. They will learn how to master both film and digital photography and communicate in the visual language of photographs. Scholars will also learn about the history, social impact and the modern trends of the art of photographic, and how to manipulate images with advanced editing programs as well as master the intricate process of developing film.
The Health Science Pathway is designed to prepare scholars for majoring and obtaining a career in the medical field. From pediatricians to physical therapists, scholars will research careers in this ever changing and fastest growing industry in the United States. Scholars will learn more about the human body and the interdependence of its systems as well as research the history and trends in health care and study diseases and how they affect individuals as well as our community.
The Purpose of this pathway is to introduce scholars to the engineering design process, by applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. Scholars will use these standards to work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software as well as keeping an engineering notebook to document their work throughout the three years.
In 2012, Sacramento’s RIRE Boutique established itself with its first pop-up location in East Sacramento. Since then, the contemporary clothing boutique has witnessed a growth in popularity, respectively allowing its expansion into a more permanent location in Midtown and a even further expansion into Davis in 2015 and Oak Park this last summer.
September’s Indivizible program served as a pitch-perfect lesson on how to best inspire, uplift, and empower our young people. With school back in session, focusing on the advances made by trailblazers within the American education system helped facilitate an important dialogue about how we can help our young people become tomorrow’s leaders.
The Seeds of HOPE Dinner is a one-of-a-kind event that brings together students, all-star chefs, and community partners. The Annual Dinner supports the Edible Sac High Garden, which provides scholars with the necessary skills, tools, and confidence to make intelligent choices about the food they choose to fuel their bodies, while simultaneously providing opportunities to develop real-world business skills and acumen.
On Saturday, October 1st, St. HOPE Public Schools participated in “Celebrate Oak Park”, a community event organized by Sacramento City Council Member Jay Schenirer’s District 5 team and WayUp Sacramento to help kick-off Oak Park Smart.
Forget Taco Tuesdays. Sacramento is all about Meatless Mondays.
The city passed a resolution Tuesday night declaring all Mondays from here on to be meat-free in Sacramento in honor of Paul McCartney, a noted vegetarian who will play the opening night concert at Golden 1 Center.
Sacramento’s Unseen Heroes and the Oak Park Business Association continue to bring the community together through a special experience known as Gather: Oak Park.
As part of an ongoing expansion, the Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce has moved from midtown to a larger building in Oak Park that it may someday share with Sacramento’s other ethnic chambers of commerce.
The mission of St. HOPE is rooted in service and leadership. Summer is the perfect time to see these concepts in full display as Sac High alumni, home from college, return to their alma mater for summer internships.
St. HOPE is founded on five pillars. Pillar number three is More Time. Most know this translates into longer school days for our students, which is one part of the concept of more time, and one that may cause kids to cringe initially. But it makes sense. If you are behind it will take longer to catch up. If you are ahead then more time will help you get further ahead. However, the pillars are not just for our students, they apply to the adults as well.
Teachers and staff at St. HOPE embody the five pillars and model them for students.
The new St. HOPE websites, launched just last week, tell the St. HOPE story, aid in cross-network alignment, and provide stakeholders with an excellent communication tool. With features like the St. HOPE timeline, beautiful carousel images, and a thorough events calendar, it’s easy to capture everything we are about here at St. HOPE. The sites are managed using one system, so whether you are a parent, tenant, or a future partner, you are getting the same message; we are committed to revitalizing Oak Park through quality public education and economic development.
After capturing the 2015 Metro League Championship banner, Sac High Football continues to roll. With the start of the fall season approaching, the Dragons are gearing up for a tough pre-season schedule with aims of repeating and exceeding the expectations set during last year’s impressive campaign. This season, the Dragons will compete against Jesuit High School, J. Serra Catholic High School from Los Angeles, and the prolific Folsom High School Bulldogs, all before Metro League competition.
St. HOPE’s focus on Oak Park’s children goes beyond just those that attend the schools we operate. While well over 1,500 students attend Triumph, PS7, Oak Park Prep and Sac High combined, there are thousands of other children in the neighborhood. Over the past month, St. HOPE has had the privilege of opening the school’s doors to children from Oak Park and the surrounding communities on several occasions. We are honored to have this privilege to support as many students and families as possible.
In August 2003, PS7 opened its doors as a K-4 school in south Oak Park. Almost 200 students in kindergarten through fourth grade sat on the blacktop for the school’s opening ceremonies, which included Mayor Kevin Johnson, founding principal Herinder Pegany, PS7’s founding team, which included Patricia Burks, and not to mention countless excited parents and community members.

Oak Park resident Janell Lacayo is investing in her neighborhood, opening her Nectar jewelry boutique a few weeks ago in one of the renovated properties that architect Ron Vrilakasredesigned and owns on Broadway.
Lacayo had been selling her handmade jewelry mostly at arts and craft shows for seven years, though some locals will recall that she also had short stints at the now-shuttered East Sacramento Mercantile over at 3257 Folsom Blvd.
