Why are we called Sigma Alpha Sigma?

A:  The Greek letter Sigma is used in math to represent summation (or total) and is the equivalent letter for "S" (think student) in the modern American alphabet.  Alpha, the first letter of the Greek alphabet is commonly used to refer to the "first" or "best" thing among a group.

Putting that all together, Sigma Alpha Sigma is the "first" or "best" student organization to promote the summation (or total) experience of high school students.

We are a bit like a professional organization or union for high school students helping them manage the social and academic lives while promoting positive values in their lives.


Is Sigma Alpha Sigma a fraternity or sorority?

A:  No.  Sigma Alpha Sigma is a non-profit organization founded at Ridge Community High School.  It is not now, nor will it ever be affiliated with any college-level, social/philanthropic Greek Societies.
