About this school

SMCS faculty are state-certified and nearly 50% have Master's degrees or higher. We provide a rigorous college-prep curriculum and prepare our students for the next level.

SMCS will become HERITAGE CHRSITIAN ACADEMY in conjunction with the move to our new facility, currently Riverchase Middle School, in the summer of 2017.
