High School Students | Mount St. Joseph University

If you're just about to graduate from high school, or if you've graduated in the last four years, you're in the right place. Each year around 300 freshmen join Mount St. Joseph University community for our strong liberal arts, science and professional curriculum. They join a campus of scholars who value service, integrity and social responsibility.

Why the Mount?

Students come to the Mount because they know our small class sizes mean individual attention from actual professors, not from teaching assistants or graduate students. They love being close to downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, and find great support through our many academic and career resources.
