Student Referral Process


While you may know the value of a Mount Michael education, many families and young men simply don’t know about “The Mount." It has long been said that Mount Michael Benedictine is the midwest’s best kept secret. We would like that to change!


You can help make sure that the families with sons in the 6th-8th grade that you know have a chance to check out “The Mount” by referring them to the Admissions Office. Here ’s how:


1. Identify Prospective Students


We are looking for names/information of prospective 6th-8th graders who are well-rounded, academically-oriented, and individuals who would help maintain Mount Michael’s high standards.  If the student is an 8th grader, it is important that you submit his name ASAP (by November 1st if possible).  We appreciate any contact information you can provide.


2. Send us the Information


Please contact Mount Michael’s Admissions Director, Mr. Jack Pritchard ’07 at 402-238-1457 or If you don’t have all of the information just tell us what you do know.  Including the following information would be very helpful:
Student’s Name:
Current School:
Current Grade:
Parents' Names:
Home Address and/or email address:

Your Name/Graduation Year:
How you know the prospective student:


3. Talk us up


Don't forget to tell prospective students and families about Mount Michael. We can mail brochures, provide our web site address, set up tours, set up shadow days. Our most effective recruiting tool is you. Your personal testimony will say more about the nature of “The Mount” than anything we can do—short of having the student visit the campus. *


4. Next steps


Once you've made the referral and talked to the student and family, the Admissions Office will begin the process of letting them know more about Mount Michael Benedictine. Please note that the Mount Michael Admissions Office will begin corresponding with them as early as two weeks after you make the referral.


*The single most influential part of the admissions process is getting students on campus for a visit.
