Alumni Stories

Life After Graduation
In June, 276 students graduated from SAS. Nearly a third of this year's graduates attended SAS for more than 10 years. Fifty-seven percent are US citizens, 10 percent dual citizens, and 43 percent non-US citizens. Thirty-four percent earned cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude honors. While our students applied to universities around the world, the highest number of students applied to New York University. Eighty-eight percent are enrolled in college, eight percent are in National Service, and four percent are taking a gap year before beginning studies. Take a peek into the hearts and minds of some of our 2018 graduates. Read more>>

National Service in Singapore (commonly known as NS), is a statutory requirement for all male Singaporean citizens and second-generation permanent residents to undergo a period of mandatory service in the uniformed services. Every year, approximately seven percent of SAS graduates are conscripted. Ritzky Widjaja (Class of 2016) and Rahil Kapur (Class of 2016) reflect on their NS experiences. Read more>>

Remember When?

Remember Coach Kasi? Coach Kasi came to SAS in 1963 after receiving his M.Ed. from Springfield College. He represented his college in seven varsity sports. He also represented Ceylon (now known as Sri Lanka) in soccer and rugger (a.k.a. rugby) and Singapore in rugger and cricket. The 1970 yearbook reported, "Coach Kasi feels that SAS has a number of top athletes that could hold their own in American meets, but he regrets that only a score of boys actually make up all the varsity teams, for lack of interest among most students." A lack of interest in sports is no longer a problem at SAS with hundreds of students engaged in sports throughout the year! Share your memories of Coach Kasi on our Facebook page.
