They want to teach and earn a yearly contract. It does not matter how long you have taught at the school, you must keep up with your content area and technology.

I will say they challenge the girls but they are ready for college. They have an excellent math and English dept . Teachers have masters degree.

Fabulous School. All that it claims to be and more. Young girls become confident women who are nurtured academically, socially and spiritually. teachers and administrators are top of the line. They want to teach at the school. The Sisters of Mercy run the school with justice, integrity, compassion, service and respect. Great Value, ask to see what colleges the students get into and how many scholarships they are given. Nice small classes. Students are loved and appreciated. They are not numbers ,the girls have names and everyone knows their names. Refreshing !

My daughter is happy to be a student at the mount. The curriculum is challenging and the faculty and staff have been open and receiptive.

The admission staff is very unprofessional and full of bias. They rejected a strong candidate (full scholarship qualified) without basic courtesy.

Excellent School. My daughter is growing academically, socially and spiritually. I found this school to be an excellent fit for her. Their computer based knowledge far exceeds that of our local school district in Summit and the cost is reasonable in comparison to other parochial schools nearby. The teachers and staff are amazing and support the girls every step of the way through their transition to adulthood. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Mount Saint Mary Academy is a complete of parents' money. As a parent, you would be MUCH better off sending your child to Villa Walsh, Kent Place, or Oak Knoll before MSMA. Although these schools may be more expensive, you get much more for your money. The teaching staff at MSMA is average at best, with about 3 worthwhile teachers. These few teachers are amazing, however most educators there are graduates of the Mount, who are young and unconcerned with a legitimate college prep education. The college list of MSMA in comparison with the other schools listed above is laughable, and the guidance department is terrible. Mount Saint Mary does not hold good relationships with any great schools. Strongly recommend not getting anywhere near this school, don't let anyone fool you. My child spent 4 years and it was the worst possible experience.
