Intellectual Formation

We expect academic excellence from candidates with the view that they must thoroughly grasp the Church’s teaching as taught by the Magisterium. Our intellectual tradition, while rigorous by any standard, is guided by the goal of the pastoral life. The Mount takes a personalized approach to academic mentoring – with an array of resources for both the most advanced students as well as those who may struggle to meet academic expectations.

Our Programs

The goal of intellectual formation is to acquire a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and his saving doctrine, while at the same time equipping him to credibly proclaim the Gospel of Christ to people in today’s society. All programs are supported by our Ordination Curriculum, which serves as a base for intellectual priestly formation.

Academic Resources

To ensure academic achievement we offer an advanced technology infrastructure, writing specialists, student-to student tutoring, and a Learning Skills Department that can help identify and address learning challenges.
