BJK Scholars Program


The Brother James M. Kelly, C.F.X. Scholars program was created in honor of The Mount's president from 2001-2012. Brother James stressed the importance of education to all students enrolled at The Mount, and he pushed the students he taught to strive for perfection in their studies.

The Kelly Scholars program has evolved into a highly competitive, integrated program of study designed for the ambitious student who seeks to move more quickly into upper level honors and Advanced Placement coursework. Selected students have the opportunity to pursue academic schedules tailored to an individual’s unique interests and talents in courses ranging from STEM disciplines to the arts and humanities.

Beyond the Classroom

In addition to being challenged in the classroom, all Kelly Scholars are invited to participate in a wide range of extracurricular enrichment opportunities, including guest lecturer symposia, field trips to cultural events and academic seminars, summer STEM camp, summer internship placements, and social outings.
For more information on the Brother James M. Kelly, C.F.X. Scholars program, please contact Mr. Marc Hoffman at or call 410-644-3300.
