At St. Mary Magdalen, school life may begin in Pre-K3, Pre-K4 or

in our Kindergarten program, where developmental milestones 

become the foundation for a child’s physical, social-emotional and cognitive growth.

 

SMM School received the Archdiocesan School of Distinction Award in 2019. This award acknowledges that 95% of the students in grades 3 to 8 showed at least one year or more of growth on their standardized tests.

 

Our curriculum aligns with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia

and Pennsylvania State Standards. In addition, SMM is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. Our school establishes a firm academic basis through 

instruction, continual review, and application of skill sets. 

We provide technology to support learning wherein creativity, 

collaboration, communication, and critical thinking are 

incorporated within all units of study. 

 

In Science, the Lab Learner® program opens new doors through hands-on exploration with labs beginning in Kindergarten and progressing with students through 8th grade. Students also 

receive differentiated, grade-appropriate, individual Lexile level reading materials with ongoing assessment through the 

Achieve 3000® Program. In addition, SMM provides students with a valuable introduction to foreign languages and a well-defined fine arts program with a creative and balanced approach to their curriculum. Our students are well prepared for their high school experience, and many are awarded scholarships to their chosen high school.
