McDonogh is a nondenominational, coeducational, college preparatory school educating students from prekindergarten through twelfth grade. The school’s strong academic, arts, and athletic programs offer life-altering opportunities for students. The academic program, LifeReady, is founded on the belief that all children want to learn. It seeks to develop each child’s potential through authentic learning experiences that engage intellectual and emotional ownership. The program’s mission is to ensure that each student develops imaginative, curious, and analytical habits of mind in a rigorous academic setting, preparing them to take risks in order to enter – and to better – the complex world in which they live.
A day and boarding school, McDonogh currently enrolls 1,450 students, with approximately 85 upper school students living on campus during the week as part of the school's five-day boarding program. McDonogh serves a diverse population of extraordinary students with world-class teachers in state-of-the-art facilities. Its curricular and extracurricular programs allow students to deepen passions and to discover new ones.
McDonogh was named a "Top Workplace" in the Baltimore Sun's Top Workplace Program for six consecutive years.
McDonogh has recently committed to the creation of this new leadership role as a strategic step towards auxiliary program growth and improvement. While the school continues to operate longstanding and well-respected auxiliary programs, it simultaneously recognizes the opportunity to develop and grow their programs to achieve untapped potential.

The new Director of Auxiliary Programs and Campus Management will report to the Chief Financial Officer and work collaboratively across other departments of the school including the Business Office, Operations, Athletics, Marketing, and Admissions.
“McDonogh School is a community that finds joy in work, in play, in discovery, and in the realization of personal potential. Strong, mutually respectful relationships inspire a passion for teaching and learning, a dedication to personal integrity, and a commitment to excellence. Embracing diversity of background, culture, and thought, the school builds upon its founder's original mission to provide life-altering opportunities and to develop in students the will to do the greatest possible amount of good.”
Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
“In accordance with our LifeReady vision and mission, McDonogh promises to educate its students to succeed and lead as globally—and culturally—competent individuals, thus students will emerge as people of character who are exceptional communicators and who honor diversity in all its forms. We are dedicated to providing a learning environment that is based on mutual respect, understanding, and kindness. In so doing, we reflect our commitment to diversity to the world at large.”
