College Guidance

The success of the Academy’s college placement process is represented by the 100 percent college acceptance rate. Montverde Academy graduates receive multiple acceptances, with many receiving acceptances to their first and second choice schools. Our team of experienced counselors provides assistance and guidance in navigating the process with students beginning in eighth grade right through to twelfth grade. Finding the right fit for each individual is a goal and an important key to achieving future success.

Montverde Academy is proud to have graduates accepted to prestigious colleges and universities including Boston College, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Princeton University, University of California Los Angeles, University of Florida, Vanderbilt University, and Wake Forest University to name a few.
