The Avila Institute offers Personal Enrichment courses for those looking to discover and immerse themselves into the rich spiritual patrimony of the Catholic Church and thereby deepen their relationship with the Lord.

These courses give each student the chance to enrich their lives by increasing their knowledge through convenient live and interactive online courses. All Graduate Program courses are offered to Personal Enrichment program students but the courses are offered on a pass/fail basis to meet the needs of those who do not have the time or resources to apply to a more rigorous study. Courses may be taken in any order (as they are available) and students who complete each course are awarded a Certificate of Personal Enrichment upon completion. The prerequisite to take Personal Enrichment courses is both a desire to deepen one’s faith and the ability to complete the coursework with a passing grade.

Who can or should take Personal Enrichment courses?  – Anyone who desires to deepen their faith but whose time and state in life require a less rigorous approach than the graduate level program. Here’s a snapshot of those who can and will benefit from this coursework:

    • Individual Catholics Seeking to Deepen Their Faith
    • Parents Seeking To Better Pass Their Faith Along to Their Children
    • Spiritual Directors
    • Ordained/Religious

    • Apostolate Leaders
