The Scarsdale Adult School is flourishing as it enters its 83rd year of operation. In March 2020, when in-person classes were cancelled, SAS moved to remote instruction. Through the creativity and skill of the SAS community, offerings have increased to almost 1,000 online classes serving over 17,000 students.

Even during these difficult times, Scarsdale Adult School is continuing to provide opportunities for people with wide-ranging interests to pursue stimulating and varied classes. The geographic locations of SAS students and instructors have expanded to over 500 zip codes across the United States and to Europe. The remote format has allowed people who are isolated by COVID-19 restrictions to engage with others and maintain a sense of community and social interaction.

There are many challenges as we plan for the Fall term. In a number of ways, next year will be like starting from scratch, with additional funds needed to prepare for the unknowns.

The Scarsdale Adult School is totally self-supporting. We receive no funding from any school district or municipality. The costs of instructors, operational fees, and staff salaries are met by tuition and the generous tax-deductible contributions of our Board members, Advisory Committee members, ongoing supporters and new donors. Our tuition rates remain low, allowing more students to participate even while socially isolated.

Please join the SAS community by contributing generously. Your gift to Campaign 2021 will enable the Scarsdale Adult School to keep “opening doors to learning.”
