School Notes

    Mount Michael seeks young men entering the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades who demonstrate:
  • Good character
  • Strong academic ability and motivation
  • Desire for independence
  • Ability to accept challenges
  • Care and concern for others
  • Commitment to personal and academic growth
  • Enthusiasm for participating in extracurricular activities
We look carefully at a student's transcript, application essays, letters of recommendation, test scores, extracurricular activities, and conduct a personal interview in order to determine which applicants stand to gain the most from - and to contribute the most to - the Mount Michael community.Because Mount Michael receives more applications from prospective students than there are spaces available, the Admission Committee is not able to accommodate all applicants who are qualified. It is important for those interested in the school to explore it fully at the earliest opportunity.Class of 2018 Accomplishments
