Sustaining Ourselves at Credo High School

Sustaining Ourselves – Credo High School Explores Agricultural, Environmental & Economic Sustainability.

Living with increasing toxicity and under the daunting effects of climate change, Credo developers felt a moral imperative to teach students everything we could about environmental sustainability. 

As, during our development process, California edged out Mississippi as the state with the lowest funding for public education, we asked: how do we sustain ourselves economically? 

Delighted with the healthy social life that was emerging among our team, we wondered: how can we teach social sustainability? And, when one of our overextended team members worried that she couldn’t keep up with all of her responsibilities, we recognized we could hope to help our students avoid this too-familiar pattern and developed a goal to teach them about personal sustainability.
