SMC registering for summer, fall classes
“Despite the current pandemic crisis, we will be offering a wide range of classes in summer 2020.

We are monitoring the situation and will make that decision soon.”

Abbey’s and Rebecca’s achievements represent what I believe SMC is about: intelligent, hard-working, goal-oriented students who thrive in SMC’s nurturing and high-academic-quality environment.”
