St. Vincent Ferrer and St. Patrick–St. Vincent have been my family’s tradition for four generations. My grandparents graduated in the class of 1921. My parents graduated in the class of 1959. My sister and I graduated in the 80’s and my two children are alumni of 2011 and 2014.

The SPSV high school experience, though different for each of my kids, has prepared them for college while igniting a passion for life outside the classroom.

My daughter graduated with honor from University of California, Santa Cruz. She started her first year a trimester ahead with the AP credits she earned here. At SPSV, she discovered a love of art which she continues to pursue professionally.

My son was fueled by the playing field. He participated on a number of our athletic teams and experienced both athletic highs and lows. The struggles shaped him as much as the successes. He is currently a senior at California State University, Sacramento. He is grateful for his excellent preparation from SPSV’s amazing faculty and coaching staff.

I am proud to be a third-generation alumna of St. Patrick–St. Vincent with children of my own in the school. Stay connected to this wonderful community.
