Hello Prospective Sailors!

We appreciate your interest in Mount de Sales Academy! For 170 years, Mount de Sales Academy has formed young women in the spirit of Saint Francis de Sales and in fidelity to the Sacred Scripture and the Sacred Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church through a college preparatory education that nurtures the whole person. Anchored in faith, the community of Mount de Sales Academy is committed to academic excellence, lifelong learning, moral responsibility, service to others, and the dignity of the human person.

At Mount de Sales Academy, each student seeks for the fullness of life and becomes the young woman God is calling her to be. This includes forming her into a lifelong learner through experiences committed to academic excellence. She knows that she is able to contribute to her community at Mount de Sales Academy and to the world through service and respect for every human person, beginning with herself.

As a liberal arts Catholic college preparatory school, Mount de Sales Academy’s curriculum provides students with a broad-based education that is strongly underpinned by the tenets of our faith. We encourage families to prayerfully consider what they’re seeking in a high school because each school provides a distinct opportunity. Your family will have many opportunities throughout the year to engage with the Mount de Sales community and experience all that our school provides to our young women.

We will share our college preparatory curriculum, beautiful and historic campus, thriving student life, and dedicated faculty and staff when it is most convenient for you. Demonstrated daily by the beloved Dominican Sisters who administer and teach at Mount de Sales, you will see firsthand that our Catholic identity is woven into every aspect of the Mount de Sales experience!

We invite you to explore the many resources on our site. While the application process might seem daunting, our admissions team is committed to guiding you through the steps. Families on our admissions email list will be sent due date reminders, event invitations and other Sailor news. Please fill out an inquiry form or contact to be added to the email list.
