Mission Statement

Hartford’s Sport and Medical Sciences Academy is a high-performing magnet school, which emphasizes student engagement in relevant experiences in the sciences of sport and medicine.  Through the Four Core Beliefs (Dedication, Respect, Discipline, and Responsibility), students attain skills in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and college readiness which reflect the high educational outcomes of the State of Connecticut.


School Description

First established as a State of Connecticut charter school in 1997, the Sport and Medical Sciences Academy (SMSA) became a magnet school (grades 9 – 12) affiliated with the Hartford Public Schools in 2001.  Presently located in the south-end of the city, this academy currently has students in grades 6-12 with an enrollment of 675 college-bound students from Hartford and 51 surrounding towns.  Enrollment is by lottery.
Sport and Medical Sciences Academy’s focus is on preparing students for post-high school studies at a college or university of their choice.  Following a block schedule, students are presented with a rigorous program of studies integrated with the school theme in sport and medicine, designed to help them achieve their post-high school academic and career goals. Prior to high school graduation, each student is expected to pass the Capstone class, produce an e-portfolio, and present at an exhibition.
