The teachers at The Montfort Academy are exceptional! The teachers are engaging and well educated. I have been impressed by the amount of individual feedback provided on written work. Students are encouraged to get involved in a wide range of clubs, volunteer work,and sports. This has been a supportive environment for my teen.

Choosing Montfort was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Since my freshman year, the school has grown in all areas— in safety, aesthetics, organization, academic standards, etc. This is (mostly) due to the staff and faculty’s care for the well-being of the school and it’s students, as well as their openness to criticism and feedback. The students’ best interests are always being considered. Sometimes it may seem that we’re not getting all that we pay for because we are a very small school with a tuition that comes very close to that of more popular private schools in the Westchester area and we don’t have all the fancy facilities and benefits that they have, but I would argue that the education we receive and the safe and loving environment we are provided make it all worth it and cannot be found anywhere else. Montfort is truly a hidden gem and has allowed me to grow tremendously as a person.
The Montfort Academy is a wonderful Classical Education High School that only strives to teach and assist every student to achieve their educational - and long term realistic goals. Faith in God is the foundation of the school, and it shows in the way the students and staff respect each other and focus on important issues in daily life. Help is always available to the students by the teachers and administrative staff, no matter what race or gender. There are wonderful clubs and sports that each student can join, regardless of their experience in the subject or sport. A student may even form a new club to promote a new interest that the school could pursue. The school is warm and welcoming to all, and students are well prepared upon graduation to do very well in the college of their choice.
