The Saint Mary's Distinction 

Saint Mary's College of California (SMC), one of the most distinguished colleges in the West, is known for the fundamentally strong and innovative education it provides.  Our foundation in the Lasallian and liberal arts tradition prepares well-rounded, centered graduates who approach life and work incisively, with creativity and spirit.

Career and Professional Development Services

The Kalmanovitz School of Education is proud of our graduates in counseling, education and leadership.  With the assistance of the Career and Professional Development Services Department, we want to help our graduates continue onto a meaningful professional life.
