High School Counseling

The placement process begins in the spring of seventh grade with a parent orientation covering the many steps of high school admissions. The following year the High School Placement Counselor, along with an experienced team of 8th grade teachers, work with families to find the best fit, both academically and developmentally, for our students.  Parents are supported with individual counseling sessions while students are coached in interview techniques and have the opportunity to speak with the Admissions Directors of the various high schools during lunchtime meetings on our campus. MTS also offers the SSAT to our students in December. 

Our graduates leave MTS well prepared for the exciting challenges of high school.  They move on to become confident and contributing members of their new communities. MTS graduates have attended the following private, public, and boarding schools over the past five years:
