Mount Saint Joseph Academy has been a great experience for my daughter and my family. From the president of the school, right down to the faculty, staff, and of course at the heart of it all, the students. The girls learn to take responsibility for their education here. I have met the finest, and kindest young women in this school. So glad to be a part of the Mount Family.

Show me the money should be this schools motto. What an embarraasment for Christians to call this one of their own. We were so disapointedby the reception we received there. My c daughter will not return. The only time rhey care for the poor or downtrodden is for a photo opt. Crazy as it seems but this time the apple DID fall right back under the tree and onto the root!

Attending Mount Saint Joseph Academy was the best decision I ever made. I graduated in 2012 and am currently enrolled at a competitive liberal arts college. MSJA provided me with the tools I need to succeed not only in college but in life. The friendships I made at MSJA will last for a very long time and are with some of the brightest, finest young women I have ever met.

I think our school and its faculty helps the students take responsibility for themselves in every aspect of academic and spiritual life. The girls that graduate from Mount St Joseph Academy are the most mature and responsible young women that I know and are on the right track to become tomorrow's leaders!

Mount Saint Joseph Academy is an excellent college preparatory school for young women. The Mount is not only concerned with academics but with the all aspect of their students lives. The young women that graduate from Mount are capable, confident young women who are more than prepared for college.

This school has a long tradition of excellence in every area that never waivers. The education is excellent, but more importantly, they provide an enviroment that creates and molds young girls into confident and intelligent women who are capable, responsible, and productive adults. They leave there with the skills to be tomorrow's leaders and role models for the generations that follow. I had a daughter that graduated in 2005 and one that will graduate in 2013. We have always felt by far this school is like no other we have ever encountered. I can only say how grateful we are to have found a school like Mount St. Joseph Academy for our daughters.

The Mount has been a very positive experience for my daughter. The school is academically very challenging. The girls are well prepared for college. My daughter is a Junior and she is very involved in the music program at Mount. She loves high school and has had a a wonderful high school experience so far. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

Mount Saint Joseph Academy has been a wonderful school for my two girls to attend. Both highly motivated students, the Mount provides an excellent, challenging education for them with caring teachers who strive to bring out the best in the student. There are so many amazing opportunities afforded to the students that it is impossible to take advantage of all that is offered at this school. The girls who go to school here also have a tremendous amount of school pride, and the parents always feel welcome.

My daughter was afforded great opportunities during her 4 years at the Mount. She was challenged academically, participated in 3 varsity sports and traveled to do service in Mississippi. Excellence is pursued in all aspects of student life. I believe this prepared her well for the challenges of college!

After having each of my daughters attend a different school I can definitely say that this was the best school academically. She played a sport, was active in clubs, was a president's scholar and loved the mount and the entire mount community. Its a shame that the reviewer from Oct 2008 did not take advantage of all it has to offer.

This school was quite literally hell on earth...the only thing I ever learned there was the best strategy for falling asleep during liturgies. I would never send my children (or anyone elses for that matter) to this self-serving, snobby, ridiculous excuse for a high school!

At the Mount I learned academically all I needed to succeed in college, socially all I needed to build lasting relationship through life, and personally who I wanted to be. The faculty there are hands down the most caring and involved mentors teen-age girls could ask for. There was never a day of my highschool career which I did not feel supported and motivated. Mount St. Joe's is a rare and wonderful example of what education should be like in this country.

As an alumnae, I know all the success and happiness I have experienced as an adult can be traced back to my years at the Mount. I was more prepared in college academically and more prepared in the real world personally. The friends I made at the Mount are still my closest friends whom I talk to almost every day have depended on since our days there. The Mount truly is a community, teachers and coaches are involved in the whole student experience and instill wisdom and perhaps more importantly, confidence. I look forward to my own daughters attending the Mount and would recommend this school and experience to all.

An incredible experience for my daughter. Within an atmosphere that encourages strong academics comes a support system that fosters success. Very happy with the athletic program. My daughter is in the lightweight crew program, which has won national championships the past 2 years. With the combination of strong academics and great athletic achievement, this has opened up for her many doors for colleges. Faculty and administration are amazing.
