Science & Art Workshop on Saturdays:

The SAM Academy programs also provide opportunities for underserved youth to tinker, make, and explore their world through activities embedded with the arts, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEAM). Since opening six years ago (2013) in downtown Sanger, the CSW and SAM Academy, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has provided after-school, weekend, spring, winter, and summer programming to Sanger youth and families through affordable and non-traditional learning environments.

Saturday programs will begin in September 2021 depending on the COVID-19 status. We will not open for Saturday program until the current surge ends. Music studio lessons will continue as scheduled.
