Points of Pride

Alverno offers an ability-based curriculum. The Alverno faculty looks at you as an individual person, not as a student in a massive lecture hall. It was developed to help you grow your skill set through ongoing assessment and feedback and is a model of the real world where there are no letter grades and where learning comes from actually doing a task, versus simply reading about it.


Alverno College is an institution of higher education sponsored by the School Sisters of Saint Francis and dedicated to the undergraduate education of women. The student - her learning and her personal and professional development - is the central focus of everyone associated with Alverno.
