About Alverno Heights Academy

Alverno Heights Academy (formally Alverno High School) is an independent, progressive, Catholic college-preparatory day school for young women in grades 9 – 12.  Founded in 1960 by the Sisters of St. Francis, Alverno has been sponsored by the Immaculate Heart Community since 1978.  The campus is located on the historic 13-acre Barlow estate in Sierra Madre, CA, which is about 20 miles from Downtown Los Angeles.  Our students come from 75 feeder schools across Los Angeles County and the San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys. A total of 65% of our student body receives some form of financial aid and 27% of our students will be the first in their family to go off to college.  We celebrate diversity, and are proud that our campus community is made up of 78% students of color.

Visiting Alverno Heights Academy 

Alverno enthusiastically welcomes visits from college representatives during the Fall and Spring semesters.  To maximize opportunities with all grade-levels, we encourage visits during our Monday – Thursday lunchtimes or our Wednesday afternoon Rotator period (1:55 – 2:45p). We can also schedule visits during class periods; however, only our Juniors and Seniors, with faculty permission, may miss class to attend college visits during class time. *Click here to download our daily schedule. Should you have any of our students on your mailing list, feel free to forward the list to us and we will notify them of your upcoming visit.
