Sponsor a Student
When you support a child, a life is changed forever!
Through the generosity of our people like you, we provide a full scholarship to all SMPA students and an exceptional, holistic education to children whose families could not otherwise afford it. We open the window to opportunities that transform our students lives.
We invite you to make a scholarship gift. Your gift can radically alter the trajectory of a child’s life.
Thanks to donors like you, 100% of our alumni have graduated high school, in a city where the dropout rate hovers around 30%.
SMPA celebrates a 97% retention rate and a 98% college acceptance rate.

High School Scholarship: $3,500 for one-year
High school scholarships support students excelling in music, art, athletics, community service or academics.
90% of our graduates attend college preparatory high schools on scholarship.
College Scholarship: $7,500 for one-year
You can help us close the college-funding gap.
We helped our graduates secure nearly $500,000 in scholarship funding last year, but many are left with gaps of $5,000-$10,000, far too great a cost for families living in poverty to afford.
SMPA provides some limited financial aid for college… but we need your help!
