Our six founding families could not have imagined the impact their vision of providing an excellent education for girls would have on thousands of women, five generations of families, and so many more when classes began in the fall of 1894. We are also incredibly thankful for the trustees, administrators, faculty, parents, and alumnae who have carried that vision forward for more than a century.

Details for our events will come to you through invitations, social media, email, and this website page. Scroll down to see our Green and Gold on the Road regional events and register today. Please be sure we have your contact information so you can join us for the festivities!
