College Placement



Montfort graduates have had a 100% college acceptance rate every year since the school’s founding. When Montfort Seniors 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 to nearly all of them. Montfort Seniors are also annually awarded an average of $400,000 in scholarships and financial aid to attend college.
