In 2019, Mount St. Mary announced that we would no longer offer New York State Regents exams as our form of final assessment, opting instead for robust, comprehensive assessments that include capstone projects, written reports, group presentations, research papers, as well as traditional examinations. Mount St. Mary has opened to full-day, in-person learning for students for the 2020-21 school year.
Mount St. Mary Academy offers rigorous coursework in a nurturing setting. Students may challenge themselves with Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment or Honors-level coursework, engage in the school’s award-winning entrepreneurship program, participate in one of the 21 different sports teams or robust Fine Arts program, or join one of dozens of clubs and activities. Small class sizes, personal attention and opportunities for spiritual and personal growth are among the school’s hallmarks.
Mount St. Mary has a long tradition of academic excellence and can boast of a 100% college placement rate, with members of the Class of 2019 and 2020 earning an average of $253,000 each in college scholarships. Students benefit from 100,000 square feet of learning space and a student to faculty ratio of 8:1.
