SMA is an independent Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Denver. As such, we uphold all teachings and tenets of the Catholic Church and are in communion with the Holy Father of Rome.

We are in the process of finalizing a covenant relationship with Holy Protection Byzantine Catholic Church and the Eparchy of Phoenix. This relationship is seen through guidance from the pastor, attending Divine Liturgy, mutual sharing of space, and living a life of prayer.

"I explored many, MANY options when considering school for my son. I was so impressed by the quiet, supportive, happy and productive learning atmosphere fostered by Ms. Pauline and Ms. Irene. The kids are so respectful of one another, their environment, their tools and their teachers.
