The Alumnae Board has an active role in the life of the school and works to make Magnificat’s traditions grow stronger each year. The Sisters of the Humility of Mary founded our Alma Mater in 1955 with the visionary idea of educating young women holistically to learn, lead and serve in the spirit of Mary’s Magnificat. Magnificat alumnae are part of rich tapestry of nearly 12,000 women around the world who continue to learn, lead and serve in so many ways. We invite you to be an active member of the alumnae community and join us for one of the many alumnae or school events—bring the children to Night-in-Blue, attend a retreat or have a girls’ night out that culminates with one of Magnificat’s polished theatrical performances. There are so many opportunities! Alumnae Board members also support Magnificat financially to ensure that all young women who want to come to Magnificat can do so.
Be sure to visit the Connect with Alumnae page to find social media links and subscribe to the monthly Magnificat Messenger eNewsletter. Not only will you reconnect and network with old classmates, but you will help to strengthen Magnificat by participating in the life of the school.

Research demonstrates that young women achieve a higher level of academic success in an all-girl educational setting.
71% of girls’ school alumnae felt more prepared to transition to college than their counterparts from coeducational high schools.
