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. 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 7th and 8th 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.

Navigating Mount St. Dominic Admissions
Deciding on a high school may feel like a daunting task. Where do you start? When do you start? How do you know if The Mount is right for you? When do you know you’re a “match?”
We in the MSDA Admissions office are here to help. First - don’t stress. We know that’s easy to say, but we really do mean it. Next, we recommend you start early (6th and 7th grade). The best way to know if a school is the right fit for you is to spend a lot of time there.
Another great way to discover more about a school is to follow what they say about themselves. Sign up for the Mountie Newsletter and follow The Mount on social media (Facebook and Instagram) for daily updates on what’s happening around campus. Like and follow our Lady Lions Athletics on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) for sports updates and news.
The rest is all right here at your fingertips. Find our calendar of important admission events and dates so you never miss a cue. Applying is as simple as 1, 2, 3 whether you are an incoming freshman or a transfer - everything you need to know is on our Apply page from HSPT Test Prep to Orientation Day.
All financial information including tuition, payment plans and scholarship information is readily available for you. (If you are interested in a merit-based scholarship, please be sure to apply by November and register for our scholarship test, taken the first week of December.)
More than anything else, we want to be a resource to you and your family. We can arrange for opportunities to meet and talk with students, faculty, staff, alumnae and current parents to ask the pertinent questions you need answers to. For us, the thrill is in getting to know each and every one of you. For assistance please email Jennifer Whitmore or Cathy Bolger or call the Admissions office at 973-226-0660 Ext. 1114.
We look forward to meeting you!
