In honor of #GivingTuesday, yesterday Alverno Heights Academy students were invited to wear free dress for $5 to support “She’s the First” (STF). The money raised will be added to the more than $1,000 Alverno has already raised this school year through the annual #bakeachange event! STF supports girls who will be the first in their families to graduate high school and trains students everywhere to be global citizens. Alverno is proud to have sponsored a student named Humu, who lives in Sierra Leone, for that last two years.
Alverno students raised just shy of $500 for She’s the First and the school is proud of them! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60
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.
