The Mount provides the perfect combination of academic rigor, service, and fun. The size is small enough to prevent students from being list, but large enough to allow for multiple sports, clubs, and activities. 100% of seniors graduate and head to college, many with scholarships and grants at top schools. This school focuses on empowering young women, and the all-girls, entrepreneurial environment promotes growth, confidence, and success in ways public schools cannot achieve.

My second daughter is currently enrolled at MSD. The welcoming feeling is once again amazing and a great support for her transition into a new environment. Academics are challenging but it is clear that the faculty goal is to have them ultimately succeed. This was evident with my first daughter who is now about to graduate from college. She was well prepared for the rigor of college academics and scheduling. It was also important to her to maintain the dedication to service which was fostered at the Mount.
