    Graduates attending four-year college and universities
At Montrose, girls take intellectual risks both within and outside the classroom. They develop a confident voice. Why? Because our faculty are passionate about their subjects. They are expert at working with girls and promote the kind of in-depth study and learning that take students beyond AP. As a result, our girls develop the intellectual virtues and character virtues they need to be lifelong, reflective and innovative thinkers. 

Montrose is a two-time National School of Character.
