In 1955, Magnificat High School was founded with three Humility of Mary Sisters, 63 students, a small vacated school house, profound faith, a life-changing mission, and enthusiastic, committed families. Now, with over 11,000 graduates, 109 Sisters of the Humility of Mary, thousands of families, faculty, friends, and a reputation acclaimed nationally, locally and around the world, Magnificat High School stands as witness to how “God who is mighty has done great things for us.”
This Catholic school, the largest all-girls’ Catholic high school in Ohio, dedicated to the Mother of God and sponsored by the Sisters of the Humility of Mary, has never veered from steadfast commitment to its mission of educating young women holistically to learn, lead and serve in the spirit of Mary’s Magnificat.
Students come to Magnificat because of the warm, caring, nurturing and comfortable environment–a perfect atmosphere to grow in faith, self-confidence and independence that allows each young woman to develop her talents and find her own voice.
