The St. Mary’s Springs Academy Fund

The SMSA Fund supports the System’s greatest needs. From upgrading technology and curriculum, to recruiting and retaining the very best educators, to providing basic needs like lighting and heating, this fund is vital to our strength and vitality. This fund bridges the “operational gap” of SMSA, offsetting the necessary funds needed to operate the school outside of revenue received from tuition, fees and regional parish support.

Give Today. Impact Today.

Giving to the SMSA Fund makes an immediate impact on the Academy. Your gift directly offsets the current year’s operational budget, and plays a vital role in the financial stability of our institution. The SMSA Fund is essential for many reasons, and assists SMSA in reaching the goals that are a part of our Strategic Plan, including:

Faculty and Staff Retention
Your support allows us to both attract and retain the very best educational staff, committed to education achievement and the faith formation of today’s youth.


Dedication to Academic Excellence
SMSA is committed to providing an environment that promotes individual academic achievement from early childhood to seniors in high school. This includes technology in the classrooms, textbooks, curricular upgrades, and online learning resources.


Commitment to Life-Enhancing Learning
We believe that “what we learn becomes a part of who we are” which is why our students have immense opportunities to participate in clubs, co-curriculars and service opportunities that grow character and confidence.


Reduction in Tuition
The annual fund also helps to offset the “actual cost to educate” (roughly $9,000/student) ensuring that our tuition rates remain affordable and consistent within the market.
