Welcome

from the head of school

More than two decades ago, I arrived at 790 Centre Street. I chose Mount Alvernia High School for a number of reasons – I wanted a small school where I could be involved.

Meet the Community

I feel particularly blessed to attend a school where I can learn about and develop a strong faith. Since I have attended Mt. Alvernia, I have seen the strong impact that service has on a community. Last year, I spent time volunteering at the Campus School at Boston College. This is a school for children with severe special needs. My brother, Christopher, has attended this school since he was three years old, and I have seen all of the wonderful things that take place there every day. I found the work that I did there to be so meaningful to me because I knew that I was helping to improve the lives of those students and their families, just as the teachers have helped Christopher and my family.

Since attending Mount Alvernia in 7th grade there have been many things that I have learned but most importantly about myself. I have learned the true character of myself and to value everyone else's. This is something that I have learned that is very important because being able to learn about who you truly are and who others truly are involves having respect for yourself and most importantly to be able to show respect to others. Another important value to my life that I have been able to enhance here at 790 Centre St is that if you set your mind to something, through hard work and dedication you will be able to achieve the impossible.

From the second you get onto the Mount Alvernia campus you will feel like you are a part of a community. There are so many great things about being a part of this community like engaging with the Missionary Franciscan Sisters, meeting new people and forming relationships that will last a lifetime.
