The time has come! Fencing has gone up and construction is set to begin at Alverno Heights Academy’s Athletic Fields! Its new soccer and softball fields and a practice running track are on their way.

In order to minimize noise and disruption during classes, the school scheduled the demolition to take place during Christmas break. When students return in January they will see that the project is well under way!

From athletic games, physical education classes, and summer conservatory, to Liturgies, Mary’s Day, and alumnae events, the new fields will benefit every student and every member of the AHA community in more ways than one can imagine. Excitement is running very high! Alverno Heights Academy thanks you for your gifts and support!

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.
