Mount Aviat Academy provides instruction in the message of Christ, according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, within the context of the gentle and caring spirit of St. Francis de Sales. We offer an educational environment that promotes high academic standards and instills the principles of scholarship, citizenship, and service in the minds and hearts of students.
“Our great mission is to love the Savior and to make him loved.” ~ Father Louis Brisson, OSFS
At Mount Aviat Academy we believe that we are called to “Live Jesus” in thought, word, and action. We teach students the belief in the inherent good and God’s loving acceptance of every person. Students are challenged to achieve excellence in and out of the classroom and education is an exciting, lifelong process.
In the spirit of our mission and philosophy, Religious education and character formation are of primary importance. Students receive instruction in their faith, not only through religion classes, but also through the witness of the school community surrounding them. Opportunities to worship and express devotion are fundamental in the spiritual life of the school. Students participate in classroom prayer, school masses, the living rosary, May crowning, Advent wreath lighting, giving tree, stations of the cross, and reconciliation services.
