Collegiate BLOCK SCHEDULING
Our collegiate-inspired block scheduling has become a definitive part of a distinctive Mount education.
Traditionally, a high school student takes eight 40 minute classes every day, all school year. At the Mount, we redistribute that time in order to give our students a comprehensive and engaging education. Modeling college schedules, the Mount holds classes in four 80 minute blocks for half a school year.
The Benefits of Our Block Schedule
- Improved Quality of Learning
- Encourages Student Participation in the Learning Process
- Increased Opportunity for Electives
- Decreased Stress & College Preparation
