The Front Controller is part of the MVC. It is the main controller which receives all request and dispatches them to the correct controller. For example, the DispatcherServlet in SpringMVC is the front controller.
I guess it would be valid, as having a class that can be reliably called a "Controller" implies that there is also a View and a Model, which renders any project with a Front Controller doing what it's supposed to do, automatically MVC, more or less.
