Welcome from the President


Mrs. Renata J. Rafferty

Magnificat High School, a girls’ Catholic college-preparatory high school founded and sponsored by the Sisters of the Humility of Mary, opened its doors in 1955 with a freshman class of 63 students. Today, the school enrolls nearly 800 students, and has built a reputation for excellence in education, leadership, service and athletics – all within a faith-filled environment.

The young women who attend Magnificat come from over 100 schools in urban, suburban and rural areas within a five-county area. Our school community is enriched by a social, economic and religious diversity of young women who seek to maximize their personal development.

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.

Mrs. Renata J. Rafferty
President, Magnificat High School
