Academics

In 2016, 85% of teachers had an advanced degree. Sonoma Academy has a very robust STEM program, with 5 math and science related AP courses. SA is also one of the only high schools in California to offer multivariable calculus.

Sonoma Academy also has a strong humanities division. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors take classes which combine literature, writing and history. Students of all grade levels have the opportunity to select from a diverse and constantly changing catalog of humanities electives.

Students are required to take one of three foreign languages: Spanish, French or Mandarin. They must also take at least one class in the visual, musical or performing arts.

Extra-Curriculars

Sonoma Academy has 10 varsity athletic teams which compete in the NCS (North Coast Sectionals) League including soccer, baseball, basketball & tennis, as well as 4 junior varsity athletic teams. 57% of the student body participated in an organized sport during the 2015-16 school year.

Students have the opportunity to participate in two main artistic performances each year: typically a theatrical performance in the fall and a musical in the spring. Past fall performances have included Urinetown, Much Ado About Nothing and American Idiot. In addition, many theatre and music classes put on showcases at the end of each semester.

Parliamentary debate, Policy debate, and over half a dozen speech events are available to students at Sonoma Academy. Debaters from SA won the 2014 Jon Schamber Invitational Tournament at the University of the Pacific, and 4 teams have gone to the Tournament of Champions. In 2016, the varsity parliamentary team was ranked third in the nation. Both the speech and debate teams are affiliated with the Golden Gate Speech Association.
