icon_academics

As part of the MTC 2015-2020 strategic plan, we are laser-focused on academic excellence.  The goal in short is to achieve, measure and market a high academic standard.

MTC is accredited through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Our curriculum follows the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s guidelines and exceeds national curriculum standards. Our teachers are highly qualified, state certified, and many hold advanced degrees.

MTC students consistently score above the national average in math and reading in the Terra Nova standardized achievement tests. Our faculty to student ratio is 1 to 15 with an average class size of 22.
