Quick Facts about the Mount

Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy was an independent Catholic school founded in 1848 by the Sisters of the Visitation.

The International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE) named Mount de Chantal a model school, one of 45 model schools in the country, and the only school designated in West Virginia.

The Mount was also a member of the Successful Practices Network, an organization that provides a mechanism to allow outstanding schools to share data, experiences, technical assistance, and best practices with one another.

Since the school's founding in 1848, academic excellence and an emphasis on character, values, and personal responsibility were hallmarks of a Mount education.

Mount de Chantal offered a coed environment for Montessori preschool and kindergarten and the elementary program (1st - 4th grades). Mount de Chantal's middle (5th - 8th grades) and secondary (9th - 12th grades) programs were the only all-girls secondary school in the state of West Virginia.
