High School Students

Will you do well here? You will if you’ve had a strong college preparatory curriculum in high school, rank in the top half of your class, and have better than average test scores.  But, as MC student Owen Shelnutt observed, “When I applied to Maryville College, they looked at more than my transcripts and test scores. My admissions counselor helped me every step of the way, from the moment I submitted my application through starting my first semester of classes as a Maryville College student.’’ The Maryville admissions process looks at more than academic credentials. We look at the whole person and take into account extracurricular and co-curricular involvement and activities, as well as personal achievement.  That said, the basic coursework required to be considered for admission to MC is:

  • Four years of English
  • Two or more years of one foreign language
  • Three or more years of math (Algebra I and higher)
  • Two or more years of lab science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.)
  • Two or more years of social science or history
