- Mount St. Mary Catholic High School will consider for admission any young person with adequate elementary school preparation regardless of race, creed, social status, or cultural background.
- A student will not be denied admission to the school because of a handicap unless this handicap seriously impairs the student's ability to successfully complete the school's academic program or unless the school cannot provide sufficient physical or educational care for the individual.
- Mount St. Mary retains the right to set local admission standards and policies.
Student's Records and Recommendations
- A prospective student's transcript, test scores, and records concerning behavior and attendance are all considered in determining a prospective student's eligibility to enroll.
- All students and parents/guardians must complete questionnaires regarding the student's interests, attitudes, strengths, and challenges.
- Current teacher and school counselor recommendations are also requested.
Visiting the Campus
- A visit/tour of the school by prospective parents and students is part of the enrollment process and may be accomplished through a guided tour, a shadow visit, participating in a Day at The Mount, or attending our Curriculum Fair.
