Jennifer Whitmore ’06 New Admissions Director at MSDA
CALDWELL – Mount St. Dominic Academy has named Jennifer Whitmore as director of admissions. The 2006 graduate of Mount St. Dominic will oversee the school’s admissions and enrollment-management functions.
“High school is such an important juncture in any young person’s life, not only in terms of their academic pursuits but also their emotional development and social awareness,” Whitmore said. “The Mount is a very special place that provides young women with the opportunity to excel in their studies, learn about the impact they can have on the world, and discover and pursue their passions.
“I am thrilled to be able to get to know the seventh- and eighth-grade students and their families, helping them get to know more about the Mount, and working with them to make the decision that is perfect for them.”
Whitmore previously worked at the Princeton Review, where she was the New Jersey lead recruiter, having been promoted from outreach manager for Northern New Jersey.
She spent more than six years at Caldwell University, starting as an admissions counselor in 2011, then moving to senior admissions counselor and later to assistant director of admissions from 2014 to 2017.
Whitmore earned a master’s in higher education from Caldwell University in August and a bachelor’s in corporate communications from Elizabethtown College in 2010.
“Jenny brings a wealth of expertise to the Mount, with years of experience working in both higher education and the public sector,” said Sister Fran Sullivan, head of school for Mount St. Dominic. “The skills she brings to our community fortify our admissions activities, from relationship building with school communities to educating prospective students and families, data analysis to marketing. We are very excited to have Jenny back at the Mount and look forward to an active admissions season.”
The Catholic college-preparatory school for girls will hold an open house for prospective students and families at noon Sunday, Oct. 28. Eighth-grade girls are invited for a day visit during the fall, and seventh-grade girls may begin visiting in the spring. For information, go online to www.msdacademy.org.
