My experience at the Avalon school is tremendous the teachers have helped me become a man mentally, physical, and spiritually throughout my last two years. My school is an all-boys private Catholic school located in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I like it because it keeps me on the right track with the guidance of men who wants to see young men become something later in there life. one thing I would love to see change is the school location and help from the state because the teachers work so hard to make ends meet with all the little they have.

Avalon is a wonderful school. Enter as a boy, exit as a gentleman. This school compliments families in growing our young boys into Christian men ready to live a principled and virtuous life. Our boys are prepared for colleges/universities.
As a parent of a young man graduating this semester from a prestigious Jesuit College, I will be forever indebted to the faculty and administration of Avalon. There are opportunities in other places, but none as willing to prepare a young man for the rigors of university life. If you think your son is ready to lead, Avalon is ready to meet him.
