  • Step 6: Marymount Writing Assessment

    Marymount will require a 25-minute essay writing assessment, proctored online for all applicants. This unscored writing sample provides the admission committee with a feel for prospective student written communication skills and overall thought organization.
     
  • Step 7: Optional Character Skills Snapshot


    Character and personal growth are an integral part of a Marymount education. Often grades don't tell the whole story. The Character Skills Snapshot gives us another lens to see the student in areas such as open-mindedness, resilience, and social awareness. 
    For the students who are applying from a school where their teachers are unable to complete teacher recommendations, we plan to ask students to take a 25-minute online  Character Skills Snapshot assessment. This will also be optional for any applicant who chooses to take the assessment. For more details click here 
     
*Decision notification letters for 2021-22 applicants will be mailed and emailed March 5, 2021, to each candidate who has a complete file. Should you apply after the deadline, the Admission Committee will make decisions on a rolling basis depending on space availability.
Marymount admits students without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin to all rights and privileges, programs and activities available to students. It does not discriminate in the administration of educational policies, admission policies, financial aid programs, athletic programs or any other school administered program.

No Test Admission Policy


For the 2021-22 Admission Season
Marymount High School 
will no longer require
ISEE scores in the evaluation of admission files. 

In these uncertain times, we feel flexibility, and reduction of stress and expense for families going through the admissions process to be very important.  Preparing for a test, whether it is at-home or in-person, causes a lot of anxiety and is often not accessible to all applicants. By removing admission testing, MHS will make the admission experience more pleasant and create an equitable process for all applicants. 

We are confident that the information we gather in the admission process, derived from the student and parent/guardian questions on the application, interviews, teacher recommendations, transcripts, and previous standardized testing, will provide us with a holistic view of each applicant.
