Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar (SSAS) is a five-year-old 501c3 corporation formed by local residents, the Saratoga Springs City School District, Skidmore College and the Saratoga Mentoring Program. Its purpose is to assist financially disadvantaged students who are academically capable of achieving their dream of going to college.
SSAS selects 10 freshmen from the Saratoga Springs City School District each year and provides them with mentors, academic tutoring, PSAT and SAT training and other help with college preparation during their last three years of high school and yearly cash stipends in college.
SSAS currently has 38 young scholars in the program and will grow to 70 students within four years.
In June of 2011, SSAS graduated its first class of eight students. All eight graduates were accepted to colleges, with two of the scholars receiving a full four year scholarship.
