SMA Legacy Fund Project

The vision of the SMA Legacy Fund is to preserve in perpetuity the legacy of Staunton Military Academy, its core values of “Truth, Duty and Honor” and its heritage.

While the doors of SMA closed in 1976, “The Hill” and the legacy of SMA lives on through the combined efforts of the SMA Alumni Foundation and Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership (VWIL), at Mary Baldwin University.

The long gray line of SMA alumni gets shorter every year. Surviving alumni are encouraged to make every effort help build appropriate endowments to sustain our Legacy long after the final SMA cadet passes away. This is the only way to ensure the values of Truth, Duty, and Honor that Staunton Military Academy stood for – will survive.
