The Value of a Mount Saint Joseph Education

Mount Saint Joseph is more than a school. When you commit to an education rooted in Xaverian values, you are investing in more than a college-preparatory academic program. You are investing in your son’s future. Here, he will build character and have ingrained in him values such as humility, simplicity, compassion, trust, and zeal. Here, he will create enduring personal relationships with his Mount brothers and the teachers who will support him throughout high school and beyond. He will grow as a student and as a world citizen, as The Mount prepares him to be a change-making member of his community. And, when he graduates, he will join a network of more than 16,000 living alumni who will serve as resources, professional connections, and brothers for life.

Michelle Faltz, Mother of Alphonso '22

As a parent, you can’t put a price tag on a good education and strong foundations. I am so thankful that he chose this school.
