At SMCA, social studies is a gateway to developing informed and responsible global citizens.



In our theology curriculum at SMCA, we provide students with a profound understanding of the Bible through the lens of Orthodox Christian Theology. By delving into the core tenets of our faith, students not only gain knowledge but also learn to embody their Christian calling as leaders created in His image. Our aim is to instill a deep and practical connection between theological teachings and living out one's Christian faith in a meaningful way. At SMCA, theology is not just a subject; it's a guiding principle for shaping thoughtful and compassionate leaders.

In our commitment to the fine arts at St. Mary's, students explore and harness their God-given talents to enhance their artistic abilities. The emphasis is not just on personal development but also on sharing these talents with the community. Through our fine arts program, students are encouraged to express creativity, communicate emotions, and contribute meaningfully to the cultural richness of their surroundings. At St. Mary's, the fine arts serve as a powerful means for self-expression and community connection.
