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.

This morning our Campus Ministry students took part in the 15th Annual Los Angeles Catholic Prayer Breakfast. The morning began with a mass where our students read Prayers of the Faithful. After mass we all shared in wonderful prayer breakfast where baseball legend Mike Scioscia shared his faith journey. Senior Cassandra was the first student to ask him a question during the Q&A! Our students were also able to meet him and take a photo with him. It was a beautiful morning! #prayerbreakfast #alvernocm

It’s our 7th Annual @shesthefirst Cupcake War! Students submit their best cupcake for $5 and can win great prizes and be crowned queen of the cupcakes! This year it was a lemon cupcake that took the crown, with a peanut butter Reese’s cupcake & Hot Chocolate inspired cupcake not far behind in the rankings! Congrats to our first prize winner, Minta! Most importantly more funds were raised for @shesthefirst and some lucky teachers played the role of judges! Another amazing Bake a Change event. We have a couple more days to raise $1,000 for girls education! Remember a cupcake in your hand can become a diploma in hers! If you are interested in donating please message us. #bakeachange #shesthefirst #girlseducation #girlsmatter #alvernoheights #cupcakewars

#flashbackfriday - Then and now... "At all times students are required to wear the school uniform without change or alteration" (so says the Student Handbook from Alverno's early years). And yet, our girls have always managed to find creative and unique ways of expressing their personal style. From state sweatshirts to formal uniform to free dress, Alverno students have always proven that style is an attitude! If you have any photos from your days at Alverno - wearing your uniform, please message us with them! #alvernoalum #alvernoheightsacademy #flashbackfriday #uniform #style #empoweredwomen
