Bingo Night will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2023 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. in the Community Center, and is open to the whole family - all ages are welcome! There will be food, drinks, snacks, prizes and even a costume contest so don't forget your Halloween costume!

Grandparents’ Day –  A beloved tradition at SMA, you don't want to miss Grandparents' Day on Friday, November 17, 2023, from 8 - 11:30 a.m. This fun half-day starts with a performance from St. Mary's Academy musical groups in the High School Forum, continues into the Community Center for a pancake breakfast, and then ends with classroom visits in each division. As much as we'd love to have parents join us, we simply do not have the room. This is a day for SMA students to share their school with their grandparents or special friends.

SMA Annual Gala – Typically help on the last Friday in April, we are breaking tradition in 2023 and holding our annual fundraising Gala on Saturday, April 29, 2023, from 6 - 10 p.m.. The Gala is a celebration of the SMA community benefiting tuition assistance and program resources. The evening includes a silent and live auction, games, dinner, and more! It is a fun and festive way to mingle with other families, alumnae, faculty/staff, and friends of the school as they come together to support St. Mary's Academy.

All-Academy Musical – Every other year, on even numbered years, students from Kindergarten through grade 12 bring you this fun-filled performance for the whole family.

Chalk the Walk -  Meet fellow SMA families and help us spread joy and excitement for the first day of school as we “Chalk the Walk” on the sidewalks throughout campus on Sunday, August 28 from 3 - 5 p.m. The start of a new school year can bring a range of emotions – excitement, anxiety, happiness, stress  – we want to put a smile on our students' faces on the first day of school and shower them with love, well wishes and encouragement through colorful artwork and positive messages. 

New Parent Dinners/Breakfast - Meet other parents in your division, learn more about our history and our vision, and familiarize yourself with the many ways to get involved in this amazing community! All events are held in the Community Center. 

Annual Hopper Family Wildcat Classic - Taking place on Monday, September 19, 2022, at Valley Country Club, this fun event benefits tuition assistance and athletics at SMA. Get involved by becoming a sponsor or register to play.

Fall Festival - A fun-filled afternoon for the whole family, this event will be held on Sunday, October 2, 2022 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Games, food, and entertainment are provided with registration.
