Always an Alverno Girl Schedule a Tour

  • 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.

As we enter a new school year, Alverno is pleased to announce that we will enter a new year as Alverno Heights Academy once again. Throughout the decades, our students and alumnae have asked to return to the original name, many of them saying that they attended Alverno Heights Academy, even though it no longer went by that name. Alverno has undergone much change over the years but the perennial question requesting to return to our original name has been constant and in 2015 we began exploring what would be involved in changing the name back. Today, we begin a new chapter in the Alverno story. We invite you to join us as we honor our past and embrace our future-- Welcome to Alverno Heights Academy. #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #FoundedIn1960 #HonoringOurPast #EmbracingOurFuture
