Prospective Families

Welcome to SMSA

What makes SMSA such a special place? Our mission. We approach education as a joyous vocation inspired by God’s love and undertaken with respect for the dignity and uniqueness of each child. Our job is nothing less than to provide our students with the ingredients for success: powerful minds, prayerful hearts, and helpful hands. And we do that in a joyful, Catholic atmosphere.

Explore our academic programs, our extracurricular activities and our Catholic foundation, and see how our teachers, staff and administration approach their mission every day. In our children’s faces, in their academic achievements, and in the very people they become, we see the success of our partnership with their families. We invite you to review our programs and become part of the warm and wonderful SMSA family!

We are blessed to be able to provide local children with an exceptional education taught in the light of the Gospel, and we are indebted to all the parishes of the diocese who contribute to Catholic education and in a very special way to Fathers Joseph Manerowski, Joseph Busch, Tony Childs and Tom Babiuch and the members of their parishes — St. Mary’s, Glens Falls; Our Lady of Annunciation, Queensbury; St. Michael the Archangel, South Glens Falls, St. Mary’s/St. Paul’s, Hudson Falls and St. Joseph’s, Fort Edward — for the indispensable financial and moral support they provide to SMSA.
