When girls go to single-sex schools, they stop being the audience and become the players.
Maya and David Sadker
As a college professor I could identify the students from girls' schools with a 90 percent accuracy rate on the first day of class. They were the young women whose hands shot up in the air, who were not afraid to defend their positions, and who assumed that I would be interested in their perspective.

Empowering Young Women to Reach their Potential
Montrose School has been educating girls for more than thirty years. Our competitive program of studies and unique Character Development curriculum are designed to educate and inspire young women. We empower our girls by teaching them the way they naturally learn.
We value the dignity of each young woman and help her to reach her highest potential by developing the strengths of mind and character she needs to navigate the challenges of adolescence and use her freedom well.
At a time when girls’ academic achievement, sense of identity, aspirations and overall well being are threatened by a pervasive objectification of women, Montrose School is countercultural.
Montrose is uniquely poised to educate generations of young women who will make a difference in the world. As a society, we need thoughtful, intelligent, civic-minded young women who will provide leadership in all areas- government, business, media, education, medicine, law, the arts and family. We need young women with a strong moral compass, women of faith, character and vision who can transform and renew our culture.
Dr. Karen E. Bohlin, Head of School
|In transforming culture so that it supports life, women occupy a place, in thought and action, which is unique and decisive. It depends on them to promote a ‘new feminism’ which rejects the temptation of imitating models of ‘male domination,’ in order to acknowledge and affirm the true genius of women in every aspect of the life of society, and overcome all discrimination, violence and exploitation.
Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae
|The future is ours to make. We’ve learned that we each have a destiny, and God is guiding us to fulfill it. But it’s our choices that we make every day that determine the shape of things to come.|
