Each year we ask all families to update their contact information on the Emergency Information Form and to complete the Federal Impact Aid Program Survey form. St. Mary’s County Public Schools System is asking families to submit their Impact Aid information online via a digital format.
SMCPS is encouraging all parents/guardians to please take the time to access and complete the form online, which can be located in the Home Access Center (HAC). Directions on accessing the form can be found here.
Early Education Registration
Welcome to St. Mary's County Public Schools (SMCPS) where over 94% of our students graduate ready to take on the challenges of college or careers. With approximately 18,000 students, our school system is large enough to offer a wide variety of academic programs and services, yet small enough to maintain an atmosphere of friendliness, helpfulness, and personalized service. Our work is driven by three planning documents. Links to each are below:
- Recovery Plan
- 2020 Annual Report
- Consolidated Strategic Plan
- Educational Facilities Master Plan
- Capital Improvement Plan
We understand that education must engage students and align to their interests and aspirations. To do this, we provide a tailored educational experience to our learners, offering choice of courses and academic pathways. We are particularly proud of our signature academic pathways: the STEM Academy, The Academy of Global International Studies, The National Academy of Finance and our newest addition, the Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. Couple this with our James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center and the possibilities for our students reflect the needs of the 21st Century.
Great things are happening in our school system, check out the 2020 Annual Report to find out even more.
