Mount Mary excels at developing confident women, and reaching them at an even earlier age through the Academy will help ensure successful futures for these young women on whatever path they take. During the Academy panels, lectures and interactive workshops are presented by experts from a variety of backgrounds, including law, business, education, and non-profits.


Visiting Fellows Program

This program exposes students to outstanding individuals in professional fields to discuss and contemplate the sometimes irregular paths Fellows took before achieving eminence in their chosen vocations. Through a weeklong residential program of classes, seminars, workshops, lectures, informal discussions, and a community keynote event, the Fellows create better understanding and new connections between the academic and nonacademic worlds.
