Parent Association

The purpose of the St. Mary’s Academy Parent Association (PA) is to help build and sustain community among the parents, students, faculty, administrators and staff of the school. The PA recognizes that the entire SMA community is enriched by the variety of talents, resources and backgrounds that each parent brings to the school.

All parents and guardians of SMA students automatically become members of the PA. We provide many opportunities to connect with each other and support our students and school. We hope each of you will share your time and talents with the SMA community by helping with events as well as attending activities and meetings.
