Saturday Academy (SA), founded in 1983, exists so that children have opportunities to follow their curiosity. We pair children with community experts, often older adults, for hands-on classes, camps, high school internships and a technology program for girls. SA's programs are open to all students in grades 2-12 and emphasize science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), pointing students to fast-paced career paths that they can't always prepare for in traditional school settings.
