Why Montrose

Montrose is a formative institution. Here, we remind girls that “You are unique, unrepeatable and called by God. You are here for a purpose.” Yes, we are here to educate and empower young women to achieve academic excellence. But more importantly, we exist to strengthen each student, to affirm her dignity and to evoke the greatness within her. What we care about most is who each girl is and the kind of person she will become.

Our unique and proven program combines:

  • a rich liberal arts curriculum with carefully chosen core texts
  • a nationally-recognized LifeCompass character and leadership immersion program
  • partnership with parents as every student's first and most important educators
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 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 equips her to navigate life with joy and purpose.
