New 5-Day Boarding!

We just can’t be more excited to launch this new option for families living in cramped cities overwhelmed and exhausted with daily traffic or rural families who invest hours in transportation during the week. The value in gaining those lost hours back remains so crucial to a student’s leading a balanced life absent of these pressures.

SAS provides the opportunity for students to pursue excellence in the classroom, in athletics, in the arts studio, on the stage, in music, and in our top-notch outdoor program including competitive mountain biking and rock climbing. Being only 90 miles away offers families easy access to enjoy and be a part of their student’s SAS experience.

students thinking
SAS does so many things well it's difficult to clearly define them, but the best tool provided is critical thinking, something missing in our society. That reasoning ability alone is worth the cost of tuition. The memories of friends, teachers, spirituality and nature? All that's just icing on the cake.
