About

At Saturday Academy, we create life-long learners. We do this by fostering curiosity in youth and connecting them with real-life experts. We believe in deep learning opportunities that allow students to follow their own interests and go beyond the boundaries of the traditional school room. We want all children to reach their full potential, become STEM confident, and master skills that will help them today and in the future.

SA2U, Saturday Academy's premier school-based program, serves Title I schools in the Portland metropolitan area. Without our classes, underserved students in these schools would not otherwise get exposure to career paths, STEM knowledge, and vital critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
