AT SPORT AND MEDICAL SCIENCES ACADEMY, WE BELIEVE IN THE FOUR CORE BELIEFS:
Each community member will assume responsibility for making SMSA the best it can be.
Each community member will be accountable for the choices he or she makes.
Each community member will strive to reach his or her full potential – academically, professionally, personally and socially.
Each community member will recognize and value the individual differences and uniqueness of all members of the community; and also model self-respect. Respect is treating others the way you want to be treated.
