Location And Facilities
Upon arrival at Mount Alvernia College you will walk through our beautiful, ornamental and edible kitchen garden to see the modern façade behind. To your right is a state-of-the art home economics facility and La Cucina, our very own Italian-inspired canteen and café for staff and students.
