  • 12:1 Student-Teacher Ratio
  • 100% of Alverno graduates go on to college
  • 96% of faculty have advanced degrees
  • 25 AP and Honors Courses for grades 9-12 

Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.
