SMA Sword and Shield Fund

SMA is proud to pass on the faith in an educational setting that empowers our students to become wise and good. Your prayers and support help us to create the opportunity for students to meet God; the Author of Truth, and fall in love with His Will. It is then that we expect our students, with full hearts, to pour into others in need of service; fulfilling a call to holiness as brave and humble disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Sword and Shield Fund makes tuition affordable for all area families.

In partnership with the Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese and Bishop James V. Johnston, it is our objective to make tuition as affordable as possible for all area families. The Sword and Shield Fund was created to fund scholarships for SMA families, providing additional support to those who would not otherwise be able to receive a Catholic education. Our goal is to open wide our doors to students who desire to know truth, love God, and serve others.

A St. Michael Education • By the Numbers

SMA  is committed to making Catholic education affordable for all families.
There is about a 30% difference between the actual cost of education and current student tuition.
This amount is covered by subsidies raised by the SMA Advancement Office.




In addition to the 30% advancement subsidy, 82% of SMA students receive some sort of financial assistance.
