Alumnae

Whether you attended St. Mary’s Academy for one year or you’re a “lifer,” you’re part of our legacy and you’ll always be part of our family.

We welcome you to come back to campus and visit anytime. We also hope you’ll stay connected to your classmates, teachers, advisors, coaches, and the school.

St. Mary’s Academy alumnae represent an active, generous and global group. We engage in many aspects of SMA life — through volunteering, event participation, social networks, financial support, and, of course, with much joy at annual reunion weekends.

You can connect as well through our SMA Alumnae Connection networking site. See the menu on the right for more information. 

Thank you for being a part of our SMA community!

"Classes at SMA prepared me for college and for the attention to detail that is necessary in the legal field.
