The mission of Mount Aloysius College is to respond to individual and community needs with quality programs of education in the tradition of the Religious Sisters of Mercy. Each student is provided the opportunity to acquire knowledge and develop values, attitudes, and competencies necessary for life-long learning within an environment that reflects a liberal arts orientation and a Catholic, Judeo-Christian heritage.
The Mount Aloysius Division of Mission Integration incorporates our mission and Mercy core values into campus activities, faith experiences, classroom learning, and community programs. We value the importance of responding to societal concerns set forth by the Sisters of Mercy. We prepare our students to be engaged with community citizens with a strong sense of purpose.

With an emphasis on values of justice, hospitality, mercy, and service, the College's liberal arts core curriculum provides the necessary basis for leadership and the knowledge and skills in a wide range of professions. While the academic focus is paramount at Mount Aloysius, the College also considers spiritual, cultural, social, and personal growth as essential elements in the student's development.
