Thank you for your interest in McDonogh School. When describing McDonogh, each member of our school community has a unique story to tell. Defined in the most general terms, we are a coeducational, K-12 day school offering five-day boarding for grades 9-12. We are proud of our nurturing faculty, our beautiful 800-acre campus, and most of all, our diverse and talented student body. In all, our teachers and students make McDonogh an amazing place to learn and grow.
Our pride in McDonogh is shaped less by its external qualities than by the school's core values reflected in our Character Compass: Service, Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Kindness. These are our guiding principles for daily life.
We share parents' pride as they witness their children's journey to adulthood, nurtured and sustained with a solid foundation in the Lower School, shaped and strengthened in the Middle School, and prepared through rigorous academic experiences in the Upper School for college and beyond.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and to help you learn more about McDonogh!
