Helping our Girls Gain Admittance to the Best Colleges
Kristin’s comments echo what we often hear from young Mount graduates—how well prepared they were for college and beyond. Our girls are prepared for the best colleges in the country – 73% of the Class of 2015 were accepted at “Most Competitive,” Highly Competitive Plus,” and “Highly Competitive” colleges and universities according to Barron’s Profile of American Colleges.
With our school motto of empowering young women, our office works with each student and her family every step of the way for each student to reach her full potential. We prepare our girls with the most complete and updated understanding of the college admissions process. Collectively we identify her best college options that match her interests, abilities, and talents. Counselors help educate throughout all four years via individual appointments, parent conferences, in-class sessions, and evening informational meetings with Mount and guest speakers.
