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.

Just because it's summer doesn't mean that the learning at @alvernoheights stops! The Alverno Summer Institute and Summer Conservatory for Middle School Girls are in full swing with students on campus each day learning something new and having fun while doing so! Last week, 12 of our students were on campus for "Bioengineering Bootcamp" with Ms. Monica Barsever, Science Department, and our California Institute of Technology - Caltech Mentor, Mr. Sam Clamons to work on some exciting projects including plating E.coli, purifying red red fluorescent protein, and learning about restriction enzymes, ligation and plasmid design. Check out the photos below to see some of their work! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoSTEM #AlvernoSummerInstitute

When @alvernoheights Head of School, Julia V. Fanara P’01, P’03, P’05, first approached the school’s Board of Trustees about updating the school library, she was hoping for new carpet, a fresh coat of paint, and maybe some new furniture—just the basics. What the school ended up with was far more than what Ms. Fanara, or even the Board of Trustees for that matter, could ever envision. With all the details in place, Alverno hosted an official Ribbon Cutting and Dedication for the Learning Technology Center on Thursday, June 15. Members of the community including the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, parents, alumnae, donors, and friends of Alverno were on hand to celebrate the most significant renovation in Alverno’s nearly 60-year history.#AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoLTC #AlvernoNews
