From Montessori High School to University

Montessori High School Graduates not only get accepted to highly selective colleges and universities, they also experience positive transitions to higher education. Montessori students are expected to take charge of their education, create healthy relationships with adults, ask questions and seek out answers. When Montessori graduates arrive to college, they are ready and able to take charge of their education, find their way to classes, and seek out their professors and other adults for help and advice. Montessori graduates have often reported back that college was “easy” and that they feel successful and well prepared.
