At the Mount, we work to embrace the collective power of our young women, to support them in a process of authentic self-discovery, and to help them capitalize on their strengths to become change agents in a world that really needs them.
Laura Hollenbaugh, Dean of Academics
Discovery through inquiry. Impact through engagement. Understanding through communication.
Partners in Learning
We are a family of learners. We foster a community that motivates and supports one another throughout the high school experience. We prepare each other to see the challenges of college and beyond as tremendous opportunities.
Our students benefit from the instruction and resources needed to develop essential skills in critical analysis, independent inquiry and effective communication. A Mount education ignites a passion for social justice and civic engagement. The curriculum establishes the foundation for a lifetime of seeking truth through knowledge, dialogue and participation.
Students and teachers at the Mount are partners in learning. Small classes enable our teachers to provide flexible and individualized instruction while offering our students a safe and comfortable environment for academic and personal discovery. As educators, we cultivate a robust foundation through a purposeful blend of academic rigor, intellectual exploration and comprehensive wellbeing.
A Day in the Life
Our schedule is structured as a 7-day cycle which makes each week unique. Class lengths are 60, 80, or 90 minutes with the addition of the Common Academic Period, also known as CAP, built into the schedule daily.
This longer block of time allows time for student-centered learning, labs, assessments, one-on-one meetings, or a special activity such as rehearsing scenes for a Shakespeare performance in English class.
Sample Daily Schedule
8:00-9:20 AP United States History
9:35-10:55 Precalculus Honors
11:55-12:55 Introduction to Robotics
