SMA Fund

Thank you to everyone who made a gift to SMA during our Fall Giving Campaign!

We are grateful to our parents, alumnae, grandparents, employees, and special friends who supported the SMA Fund this year! If you have not yet made a gift, there is still time! Thank you!!

Your gift to the SMA Fund is meaningful and significant. Over the years, the SMA Fund has provided funding above and beyond tuition to ensure a preeminent educational experience for all students. 

Performing Arts

St. Mary's Academy has grown and thrived since 1864 because of the generous support of our community. Most notably this year, SMA has grown its performing arts department to include a total of 24 performing arts ensembles, with over 500 students in grades K-12 participating. Our performing arts department encourages students at every level of experience to play their song! Not only do students have the opportunity to learn and play music, they have ample opportunity to perform and showcase their learning and talents. In December alone, there were 13 holiday performances -- the most ever at SMA. Throughout the school year, there will be 54 performances! 

We are so grateful to our community members who have supported the SMA Fund this year and in the past, allowing us to grow and expand our peforming arts department!

The SMA Fund helps your students to become curious about robotics and engineering, to learn how to play instruments and read music, to express themselves creatively, to take field trips and learn more about the outside world, to grow their reading and math skills, and so much more.
