McDonogh is a coeducational, college preparatory K-12 day school offering five-day boarding for grades 9-12. Set on a majestic, and well-equipped 800-acre campus in a suburb of Baltimore, Maryland, the school is best known for the opportunities it provides students in all grades—in academics, arts, athletics, character education, and technology. Those opportunities start with faculty members committed to building positive, productive relationships with students.
McDonogh was founded in 1873 with a mission to educate its students to lead successful, productive, and ethical lives. The school enrolled all boys from its founding until 1975, when it became co-ed. Boarding has been a component of campus life since the beginning.
All McDonogh graduates continue their education. McDonogh alumni are currently enrolled in some the country’s most prestigious universities, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Stanford. Alumni have gone on to top positions in private industry, academia, medicine, law, and more.
