Alverno Heights Academy Students Visits ABC Studios in Los Angeles

Lights, Camera, ACTION!! What an amazing day visiting ABC Studios in Los Angeles. Students in the Media Production class were guests of a past parent whose daughter graduated in 2017! They took part an exclusive tour of the set of General Hospital, visited the Executive Producer in his office, walked onto the GH set while they were filming a live scene and checked out wardrobe & hair/make up! Students were able (and very excited!) to take a photo with Chad Duell, who plays Michael Corinthos on General Hospital.

This was followed up by a visit to post-production offices, editing rooms, finishing rooms and a fun experience with audio engineers who were recording promos. All those we visited were in the middle of their work days so we were able to see them working on real time shows or promos! It was inspiring experience.

The grand finale of the day was running into ABC star Kevin McKidd who plays Owen Hunt on Grey’s Anatomy! He chatted with the students and even filmed a selfie video with them that was posted on the @greysabc Instagram page!

About Alverno Heights Academy

Alverno Heights Academy is an all-girls, independent, progressive Catholic, college preparatory school dedicated to its mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be. Located on the property of the former Barlow Estate in Sierra Madre, California, Alverno Heights Academy was founded in 1960 by the Sisters of St. Francis who sought to create an environment in the San Gabriel Valley where young women could become informed and knowledgeable persons. Later renamed Alverno High School and sponsored by the Immaculate Heart Community, Alverno’s program—academic, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and physical—has been shaped by the staff, trustees, and students. As Alverno Heights Academy once again, the school remains committed to its mission by encouraging each of their young women to be who they imagine.
