St. Mary's County Public Schools (SMCPS) welcomes community partners in support of our schools and student programs. We value the contributions and dedication of our community partners to help our students thrive. Business and community partnerships are mutually beneficial: just as our students and staff reap the benefits of collaborative relationships with partners, those who provide services and supports also benefit greatly.

Business, civic and non-profit organizations partner with SMCPS in several ways, including  volunteering, mentoring, or by providing donations, or financial resources to support SMCPS programs.

Ongoing, two-way communication is the cornerstone of a successful partnership.

The opportunities to partner are as varied as the people and organizations involved.
