Through excellent academic opportunities and co-curricular activities-all available in a faith-filled environment-our SMCS students are well prepared for a bright future. Our challenge is that tuition covers only one third of the cost of educating each student, and expenses continue to increase each year.

In order to continue offering this exceptional education experience, we need YOUR help. Ask yourself… What power do I have to ensure a quality Catholic education for today’s Zephyrs? How can I help SMCS influence, impact, ignite and inspire our future leaders? How can I help to provide a brighter future by giving today?

SMCS students are not only influenced by interacting with
top-notch educators, but also by connecting with each
other in a small-by-choice, close-knit community of families
and community supporters. A challenging, hands-on and
exploratory curriculum at all grade levels is supported by state-of-
the-art technology.

Technology is essential to an SMCS education. A tech-integrated
curriculum from preschool through twelfth grade requires
SMCS to stay on the leading edge of technology’s ever-evolving
advancements. SMCS is committed to supporting the infrastructure,
software and hardware essential to developing all students’
education and building the foundation for higher-order thinking
and technology as lifelong tools.

A well-rounded education experience ignites a student’s
passions and talents, not only in the classroom, but in the
community, as well. SMCS co-curricular activities are integral
to the spiritual, intellectual, physical and psychological growth
fostered in every student.

Your gift allows all SMCS students the opportunity to grow in their
relationship with Jesus and practice their faith in a meaningful way
every day. Whether it is through challenging classroom discussions,
meaningful service projects, school liturgies, SMCS’s religion
curriculum help students grow spiritually, reinforcing their moral
growth and inspiring them to reach beyond themselves to address
needs and realities within and outside their everyday lives.

Invest in every student by giving to the SMCS Annual Fund!

At each grade level, the actual cost of educating a student is an average of $3,000 MORE than what a family pays for tuition. The SMCS Annual Fund benefits EVERY SINGLE STUDENT by offsetting the additional expenses.

With tuition covering only one-third of the real cost of education, please consider giving to the annual fund to help cover the increasing expenses, such as:

$140,000 for textbooks, instructional supplies and new reading curriculum
$200,000 for technology equipment, upgrades and maintenance
$325,000 for tuition assistance
