Since berels doesn't know how to use web forums and I just installed Avast on my Mac and looked through everything I can tell you that there is NO way to schedule a scan. This is unfortunate. I will be looking at other antivirus programs due to this limitation.

Virus Barrier is just as effective at detecting malware as Avast, so I will go look at that one online and see if it is free or how much it costs.

Here is a link to an article about virus/malware apps for Mac: http://www.thesafemac.com/mac-anti-virus-testing-01-2013/
