ADMISSIONS FAQ's

Yes, students from all faith practices attend St. Mary’s Academy. SMA is a Roman Catholic educational institution, fully committed to the teachings of the Roman Catholic faith. All educative activity offered at the school is grounded in the Catholic faith; without it, the school is unable to achieve its mission. The school respects the personal conscience of individual students and their families. This freedom is recognized by the Catholic Church and we welcome children from all faith backgrounds. However, as a Catholic school it cannot relinquish its own freedom to proclaim the Gospel and to offer a formation based on the teachings of the Catholic faith and the values to be found in Christian education. All students will therefore be expected to participate in religious instruction and Catholic formation offered at the school except those intended only for Catholics; namely, the reception of the Sacraments. 

  • St. Mary’s Academy admits students of any race, color, and national and ethnic origin and grants the rights, privileges, programs, and activities accorded or made available to students at Archdiocesan of Atlanta schools.
  • St. Mary’s Academy shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions processes, scholarship, and financial assistance policies, and other school-administered programs.
  • To enroll in St. Mary’s Academy, a student must be current with all immunizations in compliance with the State of Georgia. We do not recognize an exemption based upon a matter of conscience/religious exemption. To obtain a medical exemption the student’s pediatrician must provide documentation of a medical contraindication to be accepted.
