College Connection: Week of April 30

Dear Mount Vernon Parents,

It is hard to believe that the school year is almost over! Last week we held our final small-group meetings with the Class of 2019, and celebrated our seniors’ college acceptances with an extra special senior breakfast. We look forward to sharing some of their exciting outcomes with you in the coming weeks.

SOPHOMORE AND JUNIOR PARENTS:   Thinking ahead to the fall—we are excited to announce that we are partnering with Alexander Academy again to offer SAT and ACT test prep classes on our campus to your students. They have proven results working with our students, and taking one of their classes is a great way to get ahead in the testing game. These classes are great for members of the Class of 2019. Our expectation is that all students have taken the ACT or SAT at least once before the end of their junior year. Classes are held on Sunday and begin in September. Click here to register!


If you are requesting accommodations, please be sure to register at least a month in advance and reach out to Samantha Flowers at

Registration deadline for the the June 2 SAT is May 3

Registration deadline for the June 6 ACT is May 4
Registration deadline for the July 14 ACT is June 15
