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.

@alvernoheights would like to extend a special congratulations to alumna Ciara Madigan '16 who was initiated into the Grand Alpha Chapter of Delta Phi Upsilon at @whittiercollege on Monday evening. Delta Phi Upsilon is the National Honor Society of Early Childhood Education and was founded in 1923 at Broadoaks Children's School at Whittier College. In order to gain admittance to the honor society, students must receive a faculty nomination and demonstrate outstanding scholarship and a committed interest in the welfare of children and their families. Congratulations Ciara on this incredible honor! We are so proud of you! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoAlumnae #WhittierCollege

Last Thursday, @alvernoheights had the wonderful opportunity to participate in Ss Felicitas & Perpetua School Science Fair for their middle school students. Our Science Club had a fun and hands-on booth that was frequented by a number of visitors who got to learn more about pipettes, enjoy dragon breath marshmallows, and learn about the exciting things happening in Alverno's STEM program! Additionally, our girls got to cheer on two of our Summer Conservatory for Middle School Girls graduates, Kaitlyn Lopez and Sarah Green, who took 1st Place in the 7th grade competition. Kaitlyn and Sarah's project focused on the difference between carbon monoxide bubbles and regular water bottles. Congratulations ladies!! #alvernoheightsacademy #alvernoheights60 #alvernoSTEM #alvernoconservatory #ssfp #stsfelicitasandperpetua

Did you know that today is National ASL Day? On April 15, 1817, the first school for the deaf in the United States opened. Students gathered there over the years and at subsequent deaf schools across our nation. The children intermingled Native American Signs, French Sign Language, and Martha’s Vineyard Sign Language. This process brought forth modern American Sign Language! @alvernoheights is pleased to be one of the few private high schools in the San Gabriel Valley that offers ASL as a language choice for our students. We are excited that our program will be growing next year to include ASL III! Check out this wonderful video of ASL I introducing themselves! #alvernoheightsacademy #alvernoheights60 #alvernoasl #nationalaslday #americansignlanguage
