Our children have been successful in high school,college and their careers because of the strong academic and religious foundation that have received from St. Mary of the Annunciation School.

I have sent 3 kids to SMA and have been so happy with the education my kids have received. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a faith based education and to be challenged academically.
