Our History and Mission

History of Mount Alvernia Academy

Mount Alvernia Academy is an independent Catholic elementary school for boys and girls from preschool through grade six, under the auspices of the Missionary Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception and their Provincial, Sister Donna Driscoll, and the members of the Provincial Council.

Since the school's founding in 1927, the school has progressed steadily under the unswerving loyalty of a dedicated faculty, staff, Home and School Association, and Board of Directors. 

Our Mission

Mission Statement

In keeping with the traditions of the Missionary Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, rooted in the teachings and values of St. Francis and St. Clare, the Mission of Mount Alvernia Academy is to educate and nurture students in a challenging academic environment to become life-long learners and responsible Christians.

The Academy cultivates a desire within our students to share their God-given gifts with the world, which has been entrusted to them. 

Children's Mission Statement

God made me to live, not just for myself, but to share my gifts with others. I will follow in the footsteps of Jesus, Saint Francis, and Saint Clare to make the world a better place.
