Helping Young Scholars Reach Their Goals

Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar (“SSAS”) is dedicated to the philosophy that every student showing academic motivation and potential should have the opportunity to finish high school and continue to college.


Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar offers opportunities that can change the course of your life. 


Our mentors serve as role models, friends & guides to our college-bound students.


Help us turn our students’ dreams of a college degree into an exciting reality. 

100% College
Acceptance Rate

  • Since 2009, 150 Saratoga Springs High School students have benefited from this program
  • 100% of our scholars have been accepted to college
  • Over 90% of our college students have completed their education on schedule

For many financially disadvantaged students, this goal would be beyond their reach without the support and guidance of caring adults. Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar matches qualified students with dedicated mentors and provides college preparatory help – academic and financial – during high school. Additional financial assistance is also granted to our scholars while attending college.
