Why Montrose

Why Montrose?

As the pandemic year showed us, our students stay connected and engaged even in the face of challenges and adversity. With our nationally-recognized program, girls develop grit and perseverance. And they develop academic excellence through character development. 

We look forward to getting to know you. Please contact us via email or by phone at 508-359-2423 to request information or schedule a visit!

Our unique and proven program combines:

  • core texts of the liberal arts
  • a nationally-recognized LifeCompass character and leadership program
  • a framework to develop reflective thinking and practical wisdom - students learn to Reflect, Recalibrate. Respond. 

Greatness of mind. Greatness of heart. Greatness of character. That's what makes a Montrose education unique.

Every aspect of a Montrose experience helps a young woman to build a life compass, one that orients her to pursue the truth (veritas) with her mind, to seek authentic friendships and noble ambition with her heart (caritas), and to direct her whole self toward free and responsible action (libertas). This compass endures well beyond her years at Montrose equipping her to navigate life with joy and purpose.

Spotlight on our Faculty

Laura Rinaldi
Computer Science
BS, Indiana University

“In Computer Science, a field that is growing every day, women have only 20% representation. Our program is increasing the interest in a field where colleges are clamoring to get women in STEM. It's incredible to have multiple course offerings, as well as the mentoring program we have, to help them answer these questions."
