Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for your interest in Mount Aviat Academy. Understandably, choosing a school for your child—or even changing schools—can be an overwhelming decision. With so many options, how do you make the best decision? What does Mount Aviat have to offer and what sets Mount Aviat apart from other schools? Ask our current and former parents and you will undoubtedly get the same response: the Oblate Sisters. The Oblate Sisters founded Mount Aviat Academy in 1960 and have earned its reputation as a school of tradition, academic excellence and Salesian spirituality. What does Salesian spirituality mean? It means that the heart of an education at Mount Aviat is a gentle, caring approach to educating students in the spirit of Saint Francis de Sales: “Nothing is so strong as gentleness; nothing is so gentle as real strength.” The presence, guidance and leadership of the Oblate Sisters at Mount Aviat are what make it truly unique.
The best way to understand our approach and experience what we have to offer is to visit our sprawling 25+ acre campus. You can explore our Preschool and Kindergarten facilities, gymnasium, media center, science laboratory and so much more! We offer private tours as well as shadow visits for older students.
I look forward to sharing the exceptional programs and devoted faculty of Mount Aviat Academy with you. We hope to see you soon!
