AMC was established as part of the Monastery of Our Lady of the Fort, which is located on a hill in the village of Faytroun, the Lebanese village that rises 1250 m above sea level. Its “speaking” rocks as a refined expressive painting, by its harmonious merging with the stone-studded town houses, formed the focus of aesthetics and a source of inspiration for many writers, poets and painters. The word Feytron means "the throne of the Lord." People often resort to hills and mountains to be distracted by God and nature, and sometimes to escape life's many challenges and threats that they may face. The hill on which the school and the monastery were built, was once a fortress, and it is likely that the monastery derives its name from it.
On August 15, 1903, the Society of Missionaries of Saint Paul was founded by Bishop Germanos Akak in Harissa. It is an apostolic life association composed of priests and brothers living in a group and subject to the authority of the royal patriarch of Antioch.
