“We are not all the same at Mitchell; that’s part of what you learn here.”
Orson Sinclair ’17,
Every student thinks and learns differently
At Mitchell, we celebrate that! We see potential in all our students and we seek to develop that potential. Your mind, your talents, and your life experiences are 100% unique to you, and we craft a Mitchell experience for your individual success.
Mitchell Leads the Way in Academic Support
There is power in a solid and innovative support system—and Mitchell has one of the best in the country. During your First Year Experience, you will identify your strengths, talents and interests and build a foundation for academic success. Throughout your Mitchell years, you have access to a strong network of professional content tutors. And many students with learning differences (LD) or ADHD benefit from the expertise of learning specialists through our nationally recognized Bentsen Learning Center. In fact, we were recently ranked #3 in “20 Best Value Colleges for Students with Learning Disabilities 2017-2018 (BestValueSchools.com).
"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.
