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. 

Our outstanding faculty engage students in our academic program of core texts of the liberal arts alongside advanced math and science requirements in a setting that encourages curiosity and a lifelong love of learning. Thus, a Montrose liberal arts education helps young women encounter and learn from the best of literature, theology, philosophy, history, science, math, technology/computer science, world languages, and fine and performing arts.

Montrose is a two-time National School of Character.
