Establishing a Foundation

Since 1907, SMA has sought to educate students in a nurturing environment based upon Christian values. San Marcos Academy has a long history of providing excellence in academics with a curriculum that builds Christian character and leadership skills.

At the San Marcos Academy Middle School, we are committed to giving students in grades 6-8 every opportunity to learn by offering a challenging and rigorous curriculum, including fine arts, foreign language, and technology instruction. Character education is addressed through an emphasis on Christian values, daily Bible classes, and chapel attendance. Middle School students also have opportunities to develop socially and physically through participation in athletics and in a variety of extra-curricular and recreational activities.

The Academy Middle School program is designed to establish a firm foundation upon which students can successfully make the transition to the rigorous academic environment of the Upper School.
