The Donnie Williams Center integrates health and wellness curriculum and programs into St. Mary’s Ryken and the larger Southern Maryland community to benefit our students, staff and friends of SMR.
Our holistic college preparatory, faith-based education is tailored to our students’ needs and ambitions. SMR students receive a rigorous college preparatory, honors and Advanced Placement curriculum in a values-based environment.
Our faculty is committed to being accessible to students and parents, and has a genuine interest in the students’ success. Tutors and mentors are available in all subjects.
Campus Ministry is the heartbeat of SMR! As a Catholic school, SMR helps to enrich the spiritual and sacramental growth of our students through campus ministry programs and community service activities.
The Campus Ministry Department encourages and supports students’ spiritual growth and development. Students are able to seek spiritual formation through Mass, theology class, daily prayer, service opportunities, mission trips, retreats and spiritual direction.
When you support the Annual Fund or contribute to scholarships, academics, arts and athletics, you make a difference. We are grateful for your support! To learn how you can contribute to our community with the sharing of your time, talents and treasure, contact the Advancement Office.
Your support is vital to what makes SMR extraordinary and provides the resources our students need to achieve in the classroom, create in the arts, excel in athletics and grow in faith while becoming more compassionate and caring adults.
