We pride ourselves on the holistic approach we use for our admissions decisions.

Mount Alvernia accepts students based on their potential: the potential quality of their character and the potential breadth of their future accomplishments.

No one aspect of a student’s credentials is more important than another. Each part of the application, from the student essay to teacher recommendations to the interview, are all of major importance in determining a candidate’s potential for success at Mount Alvernia High School.

This approach yields a student body that not only crosses socioeconomic and demographic lines but also provides a broad range of academic ability and promise.
