New Faces, New Spaces – Enhancing Learning

Mount St. Mary Academy’s Testing Center and Learning Strategies classroom have a new home in the Flake wing.  


The Testing Center in particular has taken on a new face.  Learners are greeted with twenty-four individual cubicles, each of which has a patron saint supporting the student.  Testing coordinator Julia Stevens has decorated each testing area with encouraging words, a prayer for success on the test, and a warm saint supporter.


Right next door, Learning Strategies Coordinator Cameryn Miller Burch ‘08 has created a classroom with an less-than-traditional seating pattern.  Students can work in regular desks or comfy chairs. The flexibility offered to students allows them to focus on learning in a less restrictive environment.


Mount St. Mary Academy, sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, develops young women with a moral and intellectual foundation rooted in Catholic tradition.  Mercy-minded and college-prepared, our students meet the future with wisdom, compassion, and integrity.
