Dear Families,


I pray all of you are healthy and well. Thank you for showering our teachers with amazing thoughtfulness last week to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. SMSA looked amazing, videos were fun to watch, and special written notes or letters were heart warming to say the least. Thank you for supporting SMSA and teachers. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and creativity.


In the coming weeks, you will be receiving more clarity regarding school supply pick up and returning Chromebooks, library books, text books, and other items back off at SMSA.

Scholarship Opportunities

Herb Herro Scholarship - Now Accepting Applications - Due Wednesday, May 27th at Noon

The Herb Herro Scholarship is offered to current 8th grade SMSA students, who intend to continue their SMSA journey at the high school.


The scholarship is financial need based, meaning that students/families must demonstrate financial need by way of completing the TADS (tuition assistance) application, click here.  In addition, students must complete an application/essay and obtain two letters of recommendation.


This award is a four-year commitment, typically anywhere from a 1/4 scholarship to a full-scholarship, renewable each year.  Recipients are required to maintain a quarterly 3.0 grade point and complete 20 annual hours of community service to maintain their award from year to year.


Applications are confidential and managed in the SMSA Advancement and Business Offices. A special committee will read these applications, and if selected to move on to the next round, students will be called in for a formal interview with our panel. If selected to interview, due to COVID-19, information will be made available as decisions are made on how (in-person or virtually) and when (perhaps after Wednesday, July 1, 2020) these interviews will take place.
