Founder's Day

Celebrate Founder's Day With Alverno College!

Alverno College celebrates Founder’s Day on the day the School Sisters of Saint Francis community was established – April 28, 1874. Because of their drive and determination, the School Sisters were able to grow their idea of helping teach immigrant children into the College as we know it today, recognized around the world for our teaching methods.

As we reflect on our humble beginnings, we want to share with you a look at our history, a piece of our present, and a glimpse into our future.

Thank you for your support, and for being a part of our Founder’s Day celebration.
