College Placement




Good college placement is the result of—not the goal of—a classical education. Nevertheless, Montfort takes college placement very seriously, and preparing for college begins on Day 1 with a special module in our Orientation for new students.  Our guidance counselor meets regularly with Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.  Each year, we host a college fair with nearly 50 colleges represented.  

Montfort Knights have had a 100% college acceptance rate every year since the school’s founding. When Montfort Knights leave the hallways and classrooms of this fortress of learning and spiritual formation, they go on to the nation's leading universities, military academies, and Catholic colleges.  The Cardinal Newman Society annually ranks the very best Catholic colleges of America, and Montfort Seniors have been accepted at nearly all of them.  And, Montfort Knights have been admitted at 16 of the top 50 universities of America as ranked in the 2020 survey by the respected US News and World Report. Each Montfort senior is also annually awarded an average of $400,000 in scholarships and financial aid to attend college.

Montfort Knights have gained admission into these colleges, universities, military academies, and specialized programs:
