Saint Monica Catholic Academy (SMCA) is a continuation of over 130 years of Catholic education in northern Beaver County.
We continue the mission to provide a faith-filled, safe learning environment with Jesus Christ at the core of our curriculum.
Accreditation and Oversight
Saint Monica Catholic Academy has been accredited by the Middle States Association and since 1990 (view our entry in the MSA Membership Directory). Middle States accreditation is an expression of confidence in our mission, goals, objectives, performance, and resources and validates publicly the excellence in education at SMCA. We are regularly reassessed by Middle States for ongoing school improvement to maintain accreditation.
We are also under the oversight of the Office of Catholic Education and Evangelization for the Diocese of Pittsburgh as well as Saint Monica Parish, and Saint Monica Academy students take the typical standardized tests for the PA Department of Education.
Our fully secure campus consists of nine traditional classrooms equipped with smart boards, an ESL/Learning Support classroom, an outdoor classroom, library, art studio, music room, gymnasium, dining hall, playground, and a preschool building.
Do I have to be Catholic to send my child to SMCA?
No. Saint Monica Catholic Academy provides a quality education for all children, both Catholic and non-Catholic. As a Catholic school, however, Catholic faith topics and traditions will be a regular part of the school curriculum.
