Our Graduates

After they’ve “stepped up” from MCDS, our graduates continue their educational journey at a variety of private, boarding and public high schools. We often hear from high schools that MCDS graduates are academically well-prepared, excited about learning, kind and self-reliant.

“I learned that if I set my mind to something, I can do it. I also learned that my first ideas aren’t always my best ideas, and to be patient with myself.”- MCDS grad

In keeping with the MCDS mission, finding the best fitting high school is a partnership forged between the MCDS and each eighth grade student and family. The process begins at the end of the seventh grade with a parent orientation and continues throughout eighth grade. Led by our dedicated and skilled High School Placement Counselor, in collaboration with our experienced eighth grade team, each child is surrounded by an abundance of support - from practice interviews and skill building to regularly scheduled planning sessions.
