Thursday, March 23rd, 2023: Ian Mortimer, the President of the Golisano Institute in Rochester, visited Syracuse Academy of Science high school. The Golisano Institute is a nonprofit that offers a non-traditional alternative to college for high school graduates looking to enter the business world. The two-year certificate program will focus on business and entrepreneurship. The school will help decrease the cost of attending a traditional business school. Students will be charged $8,900 a year with scholarships available. It’s an excellent alternative for students looking to land a career in business or start their own company.
Thank you, Ian, for your time.
Wednesday, February 15th, 2023: STEM Night returned to Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School for the first time in years. One activity had families working together to build a structure to survive an earthquake! Another had atoms and their families trying to build a house of cards. Atoms also had fun making bouncy balls, learning which objects sink or float, and even paper airplanes! Ms. Pat from Bett's Branch Library was here too with an activity where students got to create different buildings from our local Syracuse community.
Atoms that participated in STEM night earned a dress-down pass. It was a fun-filled night of science!
Wednesday, March 8th, 2023: “Dream with ambition, lead with conviction, and see yourself in a way that others might not see you simply because they’ve never seen it before. And we will applaud you every step of the way," Vice President Kamala Harris.

Thursday, February 2nd, 2023: Let's kick off winter recess with a student spotlight! Seventh-grade student Jayda James became the 7th-grade social studies teacher and taught a lesson to her classmates on how power is divided in the United States government. Jayda was able to hold her classmate's attention as she walked them through the role of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. This lesson was our student's first step into becoming involved and informed citizens!
Great job leading the lesson, Jayda!
Friday, February 10th, 2023: Time to shine the spotlight on another fabulous staff member at Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary! This is Mrs. Georgiadis-Greenwald's eighth year working for SANY. She loves working with students to help them achieve their reading goals and see the "lightbulb" moments for her kiddos. She holds several roles at SANY, including Reading Specialist, Intervention Coordinator, and Academic Coach. Mrs. Georgiadis-Greenwald graduated from SUNY Oswego. Her family inspires her. She says they have helped her become who she is and motivated her to be the best person to make them proud. Thank you for all that you do, Mrs. Georgiadis-Greenwald!
Monday, February 13th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science has been working with Upstate Medical University for two years to develop a medical pathway for our students. Through the program called UMU @ SANY, our Syracuse Academy of Science high school students have been able to meet with future doctors and medical professionals. After months of these meetings and solving case studies, #SASAtoms finally visited Upstate Medical University! Participants in this program will not have to take the MCAT if they attend UMU.
Friday, February 10th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science high school is paying it forward in a time of tragedy. Atoms organized a fundraiser for earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria. They raised a total of $1123, which will all be used to support the families and victims affected by this devastation.
Wednesday, February 8th, 2023: Colonel Thomas Carello from the Civil Air Patrol, Mary Wood, Charles Garland, and Abdul Shakir from the Onondaga County chapter of the Rotary Club spoke with our 6th and 7th-grade students about Civil Air Patrol. Syracuse Academy of Science Atoms learned about the opportunity to experience the flight simulator at Hancock airport and how to obtain their private pilot's license by age 16! Our Atoms were very engaged in the conversation and asked insightful questions. The program Colonel Carello talked about starts at age 12 and is free to any of our students who wish to participate. If you would like more information, don't hesitate to contact the main office.
