What Sets Us Apart
The All-Girl Advantage
An all-girls education at the Mount fosters collaborative growth. Students strive for success and accomplishment, not just for themselves, but for each other. This results in lasting relationships with both peers and mentors in a supportive environment where students are unafraid to take risks and let their voices be heard.
Our students remain focused on self-development which increases both confidence and engagement, academically and socially. A single-sex environment is the key to the exceptional culture students find at the Mount. In our school, our girls are our stars.
The Dominican Charism
Our faith-based education—centered on the Four Pillars of Dominican life—fosters self-respect, loyalty and accomplishment. Our students are committed to seeking the truth in all aspects of their lives, an endeavor rooted in humility, empathy, and great care for humanity.
We hold our students to the highest academic standards and understand each young woman as a unique person. We balance the demands of achievement with the support and compassion that promote confidence, independence and individuality.
We Know Girls
With more than 125 years of experience, we know girls. How they learn, and how they may falter. What motivates them, and what can deter them. The potential they have, and the challenges they will face due to societal pressures and gender discrimination. Here, our students find no limits imposed on them because they are girls, yet the expectation is that they will be fierce advocates for gender equality in the world.
Dominican Charism: A Spiritual Gift
We are here to help the girls of today become the leaders of tomorrow - women who will find solutions for the profound challenges of the 21st century. Because of our founders - the strong and visionary women who were dedicated to fostering opportunity and promoting truth - we forge ahead in our mission. Here, our students learn what it means to grow in the Dominican tradition, to connect academic endeavors with social justice principles, personal spirituality, and a greater purpose.
