The Mount offers its own entrance exam which is used to determine merit-based scholarships, as well as to evaluate a student's ability to satisfy academic criteria.
Formal Application Process
All candidates for admission must complete a formal online application after taking the entrance exam. At the time the application is completed, a $75 application fee is required to submit the application. When completing the application, students have a choice between two admissions tracks. The Top Choice Track allows students to select the Mount as their first-choice high school. Their applications are due within two weeks of their entrance test session, and their interviews will take place in December. Students who opt for the Regular Track have an application deadline in December and have interviews the following January. The Admissions Checklist will provide further details about the required forms to be submitted along with the formal application such as recommendations, transcripts, birth certificate, etc.

Mount Saint Mary Academy has a number of international students from China. These students are enrolled through an independent company, Tower Bridge International/New Oasis. It is a full-service company which recruits the students from their Chinese partner agencies. They secure host families and provide the academic, social and cultural support necessary to assist the girls in their transition to the Mount. All students are proficient in English and have the academic skills that enable them to meet success in our college-prep program.
