Why Study at Montrose?

A well-established program: Montrose School has welcomed international students since its inception. Teaching girls to live and serve in a global society is part of our mission. 

Boston: While our campus is located in the quaint New England town of Medfield, it is a short train ride from one of America’s favorite cities. Boston is home to top universities like Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston College, Tufts, Boston University, Wellesley and Northeastern. Historic Boston offers a look back in time, at the country’s founding, while its cosmopolitan side boasts some of the country’s top restaurants, museums and performing arts venues. 

College Placement: Montrose offers a comprehensive guidance service that helps students select their list of schools and manage the application and essay writing requirements, coordinating with both international students and their parents or host parents to complete the admission process. When an international Montrose student continues on to college or university, she is ready for her academic journey – and for life.
"College Guidance looks at each student individually in the college process, no matter where she is from or where she is going. We make sure students understand the process and how it might differ from that of her home country. Every Montrose international student who has walked through our doors has found her right match at the college or university level."

— Kendra Millay, Associate Director of College Guidance
