|Greetings Lifelong Learners,
We have just put the finishing touches on our fall/winter print catalog, arriving in mailboxes in mid July. However, as a newsletter reader, you have priority notice that online registration will open on Sunday, July 1, 2018!
This fall promises plenty of our fan favorites with many new courses and several 80th anniversary special events. Don’t delay registration; many of our most popular classes fill up quickly.
See you out and about and in the classroom!
Jill Serling, Executive Director

Donate to Campaign 2018
Recently, we launched our fundraising Campaign 2018. Since our founding in 1938, SAS has been totally self-supporting. We receive no funding from the School District, the Village, or any public source. We pay for our comprehensive program, the facilities we rent for classes, and our faculty solely from course fees and tax-deductible donations.
Your donation to to Campaign 2018 will help us to continue offering a year-round program of over 250 courses a semester for residents of Scarsdale and the greater Westchester community. Follow this link to donate online through our secure website.
