Explore Mount Vernon

Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions your family will make. As you explore Mount Vernon, we invite you to live out one of our norms by starting with questions.

  • Upper School

    We set a new standard for high school. Your child will solve complex problems by analyzing information and being involved in the discussion.

    These years offer opportunities for discovery, exploration, and independence. Introducing abstract ideas to formulate concrete solutions, students are encouraged to express their own story.

WONDER


“When I’m on the Frontier, I wonder what bugs I can find. I collect them. I wonder what that bug is, what it does – does it crawl or fly, I wonder if it has a family, where it has been. Then I put them back in the woods, in a group, so they can stay friends.”
