Mission Statement

Alverno Heights Academy is an independent, Catholic school for girls and boys in grades TK-8. The school is dedicated to preparing our students to function in a society as informed, knowledgeable persons, who have the requisite skills to make and implement mature decisions about complex problems. Enlivened by the spirit of the Immaculate Heart Community tradition, and mindful of the Franciscan roots of its founders, Alverno’s program– academic, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and physical– is shaped by the staff, trustees, and students considering the world for which the students are being educated. Alverno Heights Academy intends to prepare knowledgeable individuals of conscience and conviction to function in their world with the courage to take risks in the pursuit of values, and with the ability to apply untried solutions to problems. We also intend to create an environment in which students can develop the humility and humor needed to learn from their mistakes; in which they can experience the joy that comes from behaving with a spirit of generosity; and in which they can grow in the compassion necessary to live as peacemakers in the global community.

About Alverno Heights Academy

At Alverno, we steadfastly place our confidence in God’s providence to build community by fostering love, respecting individual dignity, nurturing kindness and friendship, while instilling hope to seek a way to make a difference with perseverance. The Catholic tradition of faith, service and academic excellence is evident on the campus where students embrace God’s love as they develop self-confidence and lasting school pride. Together we strive to achieve our very best in service, academics, the arts, technology and sports. As we look to the future, may we remember to cherish every “New Beginning” as God’s divine gift.
