About

Founded in 1858 by the Sisters of Saint Joseph, Mount Saint Joseph Academy (the Mount) is a college preparatory school for girls where students are challenged every day to realize their limitless potential. We offer a comprehensive education that seeks to nurture the academic, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual facets of our young women. The transformation is evident as each student finds herself and her place in a legacy of exceptional women leaders who stand ready to shape the world.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Our educational philosophy reflects the mission, charism, and tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Teachers and students alike are challenged to love and serve God and neighbor with joy, and to respond with hope to problems presented during their time at the Mount and beyond. As a result, Mount Saint Joseph Academy's curriculum encompasses the spiritual, academic, cultural, social, aesthetic, psychological, and physical aspects of life, while our Catholic atmosphere fosters holistic development, enriching the experiences of the school community and encouraging a mature sense of responsibility toward self and others.
