Mount St. Mary Catholic High School provides an intensive, college-preparatory education built on the Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum. All students are encouraged to take Pre-AP and AP classes in math, science, English, social studies, and foreign language and sit for the AP tests through which they can earn college credit.
Our AP-trained teachers also teach our non-AP courses, so even students who do not take AP classes benefit from our enhanced curriculum.
We use a semester system with courses ranging in length from one semester to a full year. There are four 9-week grading periods. At the end of the semester, comprehensive exams are administered in each course.
