All faculty also serve as advisors, using their wisdom and experience to help guide each student as she learns to make choices - sometimes difficult ones. Teaching goes beyond subject matter at Montrose. It embraces intellectual, social, professional and character goals to stimulate, support and nurture each girl as an individual.
Through the advising program
, Montrose seeks to instill in all students the desire for personal improvement and self-knowledge. Students are encouraged to develop perspective on life's ups and downs and grow in virtues such as intellectual honesty, courage, self-mastery, sincerity, gratitude, cheerfulness, generosity, industriousness, modesty, and order.
