Administrative Vision Statement

As an administrative team, we challenge ourselves and others in the St. Mary's Academy community to model and insure the actualization of the SMA mission and the charisma of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. As leaders we create a supportive and nurturing framework for the development and delivery of a vibrant, comprehensive program of excellence.
