“Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.”
– Rocky Balboa
Students do not come to SMT simply to learn, they come because they are hungry for hope. They do not stay because we are a Catholic School, they stay because we are love. When they leave with the best education, they also leave knowing nothing is impossible if you have faith in a God who will never leave you.
The individual battles of our students may be different from those in the 1970s, but we have all experienced a moment in life where the odds were stacked against us, where we had to fight through never-ending struggle, or where we were expected to quit after feeling defeated. The students at SMT have the hearts of a fighter just like Philadelphia’s famous Rocky Balboa. They are faced with the same battles of changing times, personal fears and overwhelming heartache. It is at this place where we meet them with open arms!
