Some of the best advocates for a school are the students who experience its effects on daily basis. The SMSA Student Ambassadors Program is designed to provide current SMSA juniors the opportunity to share their love for Catholic education with prospective parents and students, as well as lead the SMSA student body by their actions. Not only are student ambassadors fundamental in showcasing academic excellence, community involvement, and Catholic values in front of prospective families, but they are equally important in strengthening the bond with current families. Student Ambassadors will be trained to become eloquent and knowledgeable representatives of SMSA. This position should also be viewed as an opportunity for students to build important skills that could be transferred into a future position in a college admissions office, as well.
