Welcome to Alverno Heights Academy

Julia V. Fanara
Head of School

I am so honored to be the Head of School of such a unique and amazing institution. Alverno Heights Academy was founded by the Sisters of St. Francis in 1960 and was later sold to Immaculate Heart Community in 1978 which continues to sponsor Alverno to this day. The charism of both of these religious orders is alive and well at Alverno. Alverno has always been more than just a progressive, independent, college preparatory school for girls…
