SMA Welcome

Welcome to St. Mary's Academy

Saint Mary’s Academy (SMA) is a private, traditional Catholic school for grades K through 12 and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operating under the guidelines of the United States District of the Society of St. Pius X. The Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, or national or ethnic origin in the administration and hiring of personnel, admissions, or any other school programs.


The Academy's mission as a private, K-12 Catholic school is to develop the minds, bodies, and souls of our students in accordance with the perennial educational and moral principles of the Roman Catholic Church. We provide a structured, traditional, social, and academic environment in which students pursue truth and develop virtue within a rigorous, balanced curriculum, and take active part in the life and liturgy of a thriving community fully committed to developing Christian values. By providing an atmosphere of serious scholarship and Catholic vitality, St. Mary's Academy strives to form good Catholic citizens, men and women willing and able to work for the restoration of all things in Christ, freely submitting to the reign of Our Lord in the spiritual, moral, intellectual, and physical realms as inspired by the motto of the Society of St. Pius X, to equip students "To restore all things in Christ."


Learning is a profoundly human process, one best accomplished through patient, qualitative drawing out, rather than mechanistic, quantitative filling up. The school strives continuously to provide the best possible facilities, tools, and material resources, in terms of texts and an integrated curriculum, simultaneously recognizing that our teachers’ mastery of subject matter, ability to communicate, and, above all, love for our students, are what finally foster a desire for learning in those students. Our curriculum challenges minds; our teachers work with God to form souls.
