"Love God and live together in peace and charity"
- Bishop Daniel Delany
Bishop Daniel Delany formed the congregation of the brothers of Saint Patrick, way back in 1808 in Ireland, which has its apostolic objective as the service of the needy and work for the education and the betterment of the youth. His motto rings like a siren across the seven seas – "Fortiter et Suaviter" meaning "Gentle but firm", one of the best qualities imbibed in the members of the congregation. It was later in 1875 that the Patrician Brothers landed on the Indian soil to enrich it with their love, culture, knowledge and serenity through the seeds of education that they began to sow and have nurtured since then. In 1952, St. Mary's Academy, Meerut, blossomed and has served students from all social and economic backgrounds for past 60 years.
Our motto at SMA, "Recits Corde Laetitia" means " Joy to the upright of Heart" is the vision that the Patrician Brothers wish to instill in the Marians through academic excellence, community service, peace consciousness, and realization of the importance of universal love and faith in God.
The Marian family is a perfect blend of excellent infrastructure, encouraging environment, diligent faculty, active and inquisitive students and supportive parents.
Ever since its inception in 1952, S.M.A, Meerut has been achieving remarkable milestones year after year, on its journey to fulfill the aim which is to hone the academic skills, fine-tune the aesthetic senses and work towards building a Holistic culture, that values the individuality of each pupil, helping them to realize their innate potential.
We, at S.M.A, believe to teach students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively and to utilize technology in relevant ways throughout their school life.
The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one, thus, we foster the wings of ambition in Marians, so that they can soar high like falcons to touch the skies, and, endeavor to make them global citizens who can look beyond geographical boundaries and promote a culture of peace and Universal Brotherhood.
The environment at S.M.A provides unmatched qualitative education par excellence to develop the best that is latent in students and to encourage the child to explore and revel in the joy of learning. The endeavor is to retain smiles on the faces of the children, channelize the energies of youthfulness while sensing the beautiful connectivity between the heart, character, nation and the world.
Thus, with a salubrious campus, dedicated and highly qualified and experienced teachers, the rigorous scholastic programmes, well-planned and myriad co-curricular and sports programmes we ensure our students are equipped with skills to excel in the chosen fields. We provide a platform to the Marians to develop into adults endowed with analytical and logical thinking, a mind that is curious and inquisitive and a sensitivity that makes them humane in thought, word and deed.
" May God Bless you all!! "
