In every year of our academic program, girls gain deep content knowledge in each discipline of a strong liberal arts curriculum. But what sets Montrose is apart is that we go beyond careful reading, writing and analytical skills. In our signature Senior Capstone class, girls dive into both ancient texts and recent research, as they strive to answer the most essential question: What is the best way to live? # 6: Small class sizes allow intellectual risk taking. 13. That's the average size of an academic class at Montrose. With our intimate class section sizes, every girl learns to take intellectual risks and develop a confident voice. # 7: Reflection skills honed in daily enrichment period.
In our hyper-connected world, we all benefit from the opportunity to press pause. The Enrichment period
is unique to Montrose: a daily opportunity for a purposeful pause for students to enrich their minds and/or their souls. Girls can choose each day whether to attend Mass in the Chapel or to read a good-quality book in the Enrichment Reading room. And they have the chance to reflect, recharge and grow in good habits of mind, heart and character.# 8: Collaboration with parents strengthens character.
We believe that parents are their daughter's first and most important educators - and that our faculty and mentors are vital partners in that education. We aim to work with you to support your daughter's growth, so she can become the best version of herself. Learn more about collaboration with parents at Montrose.# 9: Mentors provide individual coaching.
The mentoring program at Montrose goes far beyond traditional academic advising - here, a mentor serves as captain of her mentee's success management team. Every girl meets regularly with her mentor who acts as a coach and guide. Through their conversations, girls learn to reflect, to acquire perspective on life’s ups and downs, to know themselves better and to foster their God-given potential.
#10: Our graduates matriculate and thrive at America's top colleges.
"The academic work in college was easy for me after Montrose," say many of our alumnae. Montrose offers top academics with 17 Advanced Placement classes - plus signature offerings that go beyond AP. Our teachers meet every student where she is and bring out the best in her. And when our alumnae arrive at college
, they are prepared not just to survive, but to thrive.
