Community Pride

At Mount Vernon, we believe that a strong, engaged community starts with our families. There are numerous ways for parents to get involved and make a lasting impact. Parents, grandparents, and extended family can learn alongside students as active and engaged members of our community, invest their time and talents by serving in various capacities, join committees within our parent network, and participate in our exciting school signature events.

Together, the Mount Vernon community creates a nurturing and dynamic environment that enriches the educational experience for all. Explore the opportunities below and discover how you can be a vital part of the Mount Vernon community!

At the moment when someone can say to themselves, "I’m a Mustang," they already have a sense of belonging. A feeling of pride. An appreciation for school spirit.

They are a part of the community. The Mount Vernon community.



Parents, grandparents, and extended family LEARN alongside students as active engaged members of the community. Through Mount Vernon’s Parent University, the School offers unique insights and opportunities for lifelong learning with an annual Speaker Series, Divisional Connections, Learning Walks, and special events.

During our annual Speaker Series, industry experts provide enterprise on topics tied to the Mount Vernon student experience. The School draws from a deep bench of in-house learning designers to national speakers providing insights and best practices.

Divisional Connections offer more specific insights into student learning and life in the Preschool, Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School.

Mount Vernon faculty have been conducting learning walks and instructional rounds, to transform school culture from a closed-door, master-teacher mindset to an open-door, collaborator mindset, for many years. Recognizing the value, the invitation is extended to parents to accompany teachers on these learning walks. With quiet, independent observations, parents enter the classroom, fade into the background or look over a student’s shoulder to better understand learning. By participating in the classroom as an observer, or a questioner, MV parents gain a strong understanding of the learning that is taking place through student comments, conversations, and actions. All parents are invited to see learning in action.

These events bring our community together through fellowship, advance the mission of the School, and drive impact.
