A 'Facing History and Ourselves' School
Magnificat is a leader in social justice.
By supporting students in their holistic growth and by engaging them in learning, leadership and service, Magnificat offers students opportunities to grow in their faith and respond to the call to live Mary’s Magnificat in the world. In 2012, Magnificat was proud to become the fourth school in the country to earn designation as a Fair Trade High School.
Our school proudly partners with Facing History and Ourselves as a member of the Northeast Ohio Schools Network, and in 2016, Magnificat was designated a member of the Innovative School Network. Facing History's mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry.
By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives.
