Our Mission

Saratoga Sponsor A Scholar is a ten-year-old nonprofit corporation formed by local residents, Skidmore College, the Saratoga Springs High School and the Saratoga Mentoring Program.  Its purpose is to assist fiscally disadvantaged students in Saratoga Springs who are academically capable of achieving their dream of attending college but who do not have the same opportunities as other students.

Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar is dedicated to the philosophy that every student showing academic motivation and potential should have the opportunity to finish high school and continue on to college. For many financially disadvantaged students, this goal would be beyond their reach without the support and guidance of caring adults. Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar provides qualified students with mentors and college preparatory help during high school and financial assistance during college.
