College & Career

A Journey to Success

The Road to College is a partnership between MND, our students and our parents that begins on the first day of a student’s freshman year. MND’s systematic, yet personalized approach ensures that each student arrives at the best destination for her.

Each student will receive a Road to College Planning Guide freshman year, followed by a Road to College Resource Guide sophomore year. This Resource Guide contains a wealth of information designed to help navigate the college search and to understand the admissions and financial aid process. How to Begin the College Search Process, Career Exploration, ACT and SAT Preparation, Financial Aid, and How to Apply to College are just a few of the topics in the twelve section guide that offer valuable information and help guide you in your planning. Your daughter’s Guidance Counselor will reference the Road to College Resource Guide and work through its contents with your daughter during individual and group meetings beginning the sophomore year and carrying through her senior year.

The Road to College will look different for each student, and it is our mission to help our students prepare to take their next steps in life.

$21 Million was awarded to the Class of 2019 for merit-based college scholarships.

99.42% of MND graduates pursue higher education.

91 graduates and current students were recognized as 2018 Advanced Placement Scholars.

The Guidance Department welcomed 111 college representatives to MND last Fall
