Empowering Students

A wide selection of clubs, sports, and activities reinforces our students' preparation for leadership roles in society and the workplace. A rich variety of special events and a strong network of successful alumnae contribute to the outstanding opportunities available to SAS students and graduates.

The Benefits of Women's Education

Over the past two decades, external studies have shown that women who attend single-sex colleges are more engaged, receive better grades, score higher on tests, and feel more appropriately challenged by their courses than their peers at co-educational institutions. Additionally, The Women's College Coalition found that graduates of women's colleges report greater satisfaction with their college experience, are more likely to earn advanced degrees, are better prepared for leadership positions in their chosen career, and typically earn higher salaries than their co-ed counterparts.
