Is Avalon a Catholic school?
As of July 1, 2010, The Avalon School officially became a Catholic school. As an independent Catholic school, it will remain responsible for its own governance, academic quality, day-to-day operations and finances, while also meeting the Catholic identity standards established by the archdiocese.
Is The Avalon School accredited?
The Avalon School currently holds certification from the Maryland Department of Education after completing a comprehensive evaluation.
Are Avalon students required to wear a uniform?
No, but there is a dress code. Students are required to wear dress shirts, dress pants with belt, dress shoes, and a tie. High school students must wear a sport coat. We believe that school is the training ground for professional life and students should dress accordingly.
What is the average class size?
As a general rule, class size does not exceed 18 students. We prefer that the Lower School (grades K-5) be capped at 15 students per class.
How do you handle learning differences?
Learning differences are handled on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the parents and any educational consultants with whom they are working. Small class size allows for greater individual attention. Teachers are available after school each day for extra help. Extra time may be granted on tests. If appropriate, a course may be substituted by a study hall or supplemental work with a tutor. Faculty meetings and workshops also address these issues.
Blazer or sport-coat (for upper school students), dress shirt, appropriate pants, belt, dress shoes (no sports shoes with the exception those that are all black), and a neck tie. Identification on blue blazers is helpful. You should be well-groomed. After the Founders’ Feast in April, the blazer will not be required.
MIDDLE & LOWER SCHOOLS
Middle and lower school students should wear dress shirt, appropriate pants, belt and dress shoes (no sports shoes with the exception those that are all black), and a neck tie. Sweaters may be worn for warmth, but sweatshirts are not permitted.
Primary grade students simply need to wear the Avalon polo shirt.
