Our students succeed in an impressive variety of ways.

Our seniors don’t just get into Ivies (though some do!); they get into the schools that fit their dreams and ambitions. They become painters and marine biologists, cellists and civil engineers. They become who they want to be, and they live happy, authentic, fulfilling lives because of it.

Because of my MCDS experience, I can speak up during seminars and raise my hand in busy lecture halls at Yale. My heart always races, but I have the confidence to engage with my classmates and professors because I did that all through high school.
