St. Mary's Academy is a caring community that values the unique potential of all students and staff.  We have a strong history of providing a stimulating education that continues to challenge and examine its best practices.  There is pure joy when you work for SMA! - Fine Arts Teacher

St. Mary's Academy is "home" to me! I love the community and atmosphere, the rich history and Loretto School Values, and all of the opportunities the students have. I love that we are all "family".

It is a privilege to be able to be a part of these young lives and see them mature and develop into fine young people.  - Performing Arts Teacher

I love teaching in an independent school because the students come to school prepared to learn, the community is close-knit and actively supports achievement, and teachers have the flexibility and autonomy we need. In addition, the intimate learning environment allows us to communicate consistent goals to our students and collaborate more effectively with our colleagues. - Lower School Teacher

The best decision I ever made was to become a part of the St. Mary's Academy faculty and community 34 years ago. In that time, I have met some amazing kids. The values of Faith, Community, Justice and Respect have guided me through pathways that I will remember and cherish forever. The most memorable adventures have been, and will continue to be, with the 100's of kids that have and will walk the sidewalks and halls of this very special place. - Middle School Teacher
