Each year the Mount St. Mary Catholic High school counseling office nominates a rising Rocket senior for the National Student Leadership Conference. For 2018, MSM senior Sophia Shepard was chosen by the conference to represent The Mount at the NSLC.


"Sophia was nominated by the counseling office for her interest in psychology and for her strong academics. Sophia is a great ambassador for MSM and has an extremely bright future in front of her," said MSM Counselor, Mallory Tecmire.


The National Student Leadership Conference is a pre-college program where students live on a college campus for a week, attend leadership training, hear exclusive guest speakers and experience hands-on simulations.


Sophia spent a week and a half at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. While at Vanderbilt she lived in the campus dorms and attended college psychology classes.


"I met a lot of really good people over my week and a half participating in the NSLC program. It was great to connect with others from around the country who have the same career interests as me. I enjoyed getting to learn about the college experience at such a prestigious university," said MSM senior, Sophia Shepard.


Congratulations to Sophia Shepard on being selected for this exclusive experience!

Each year Mount St. Mary Catholic High School has the honor of participating in the Notre Dame ACE program. Through this program, MSM receives two educators who are receiving their masters degree through the ACE program.


The Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) is housed in the Institute for Educational Initiatives at the University of Notre Dame; its mission is to sustain and strengthen Catholic schools. The Mary Ann Remick Leadership Program is a 25-month graduate program (delivered over three summers and two academic years) for educators seeking to develop skills to become transformational leaders in their Catholic school community. Upon completion of the program, participants earn a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from the University of Notre Dame and can be eligible for K-12 administrative license.


During the two academic years in the program, ACE teachers complete a leadership internship at their sponsor school. As part of this internship, participants work with their school supervisor to ensure that they are provided the opportunity to fulfill the requirements of the internship and gain hands on experience in the classroom. During the summer months, participants attend classes on campus at Notre Dame.


Meet the 2018-2019 Mount St. Mary Ace Teachers...

Mount St. Mary is a college preparatory high school that takes pride in preparing students for a successful future at the college level.


Advanced Placement testing is taken Senior year of high school. If a student receives a qualifying score of three or higher on an AP test, the student may receive college credit in that area of study.

Students at MSM have a rigorous curriculum and are on a block schedule, similar to that of a college schedule, during all four years of their Mount education. Freshman year at MSM, students begin the CollegeBoard Roadtrip Nation Program. The road map program records the students subject interests, career interests and helps students with a plan for college over their four years of high school. By senior year, the MSM Counseling Department encourages students to have applied to all colleges of interest and scholarship opportunities by late fall.


The MSM Plan:


-9th Grade at MSM: Students take the PSAT 8/9 test to prepare for the PSAT and the ACT-Aspire to prepare for the ACT.
