A tuition-free nonprofit military public charter school.



Thank You!

We are so grateful for the support from our SMA Community in celebrating this milestone event of 20 Years of Tradition Celebration! The blending of the past and present through the involvement of alumni, current cadets and their families, faculty, founders, boards of directors and trustees, community and business supporters showcases the strength of the SMA Community and its impact on the lives of its cadets.
Patriotism was prevalent during the event, as demonstrated by the choir's rendition of the National Anthem and the color guard's presentation of the colors. Our drumline executed another flawless performance that further showcased the dedication and commitment to excellence instilled in all of our cadets.
Continuing SMA's mission of leading the next generation with honor, integrity, and respect: It's through the support of the community that SMA can continue to thrive and make a positive impact in the lives of its cadets.

Here's to the next 20 years of tradition and success for SMA!
