We believe that students rise to the expectations we set for them. Our curriculum is designed to empower students to succeed in college and the professional workforce, training students to think critically and solve real-world problems with effective solutions.
High school students participate in college-level instruction with a variety of available AP classes, as well as SAT/ACT prep. AP exams are administered on campus in the Spring.
Math is the language of logic. Teaching math is more than just teaching students to memorize processes and cycle through them. When we teach math at SMCA, we are teaching students how to think.
Our English curriculum highlights empowering students with the language and literature to express themselves, the rhetoric to defend themselves, and the empathy to listen to others.
Science at SMCA is an investigative process, where students learn to inquire about God's creation, examine and observe its underlying phenomenon, and make valuable inferences that change their worldview.
Understanding human history and the forces that shape it is an invaluable skill for all those interested in having an impact on the world. Students at SMCA engage with a variety of primary and secondary texts, and apply their knowledge through essays and discussions.
We train our students with a deep understanding of Bible through Orthodox Christian Theology. By learning what we believe, students learn to fully live out their Christian calling to become leaders created in His image.
We are committed to the importance of engaging with the fine arts at St. Mary's, where students learn to utilize their God-given talents to develop their artistic abilities to share with their community.
In an increasingly globalized market, cultural training is a necessary component of every child's education. Here at St. Mary's we prepare students to engage and communicate across international boundaries.
Whether playing basketball, soccer, volleyball or ping-pong, our students learn the necessity of balancing the mind, body, and spirit. Indoor amenities enable them to train and discipline their bodies year round to glorify God in all areas of life.
"No matter how you are now, you can be a good student.
You can be inspired to be a good student."
