Welcome to the Chalon Campus of Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles

High above the energetic thoroughfares of Los Angeles, in the Santa Monica Mountains, is the jewel of Mount St. Mary's College, our historic Chalon Campus.

Chalon opened by 1930, less than five years after the school's founding by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet at our original location southwest of downtown Los Angeles. Featuring striking Spanish Colonial architecture, Mount students enjoy an academic environment unparalleled in Southern California for its serenity and beauty.

The gorgeous Chalon Campus has grown to become home to all of the Mount's traditional baccalaureate degree programs, including 24 bachelor of arts majors and six bachelor of science majors. The majority of Mount St. Mary's College students attend the Chalon Campus as their primary educational environment.
