Alumnae Board

All graduates of Resurrection College Prep High School become members of the Alumnae Association. The Association sponsors various events throughout the year including: Breakfast with Santa and  Career Day. The Alumnae Association provides volunteers for these functions to help keep the school thriving.

The Resurrection College Prep High School Alumnae Association is reinvigorating its board and we look forward to inducting our new members in the spring of 2019. The purpose is to continue to build and strengthen the Resurrection alumnae network and further develop relationships between alumnae and the Resurrection College Prep community. The alumnae board supports the mission of Resurrection College Prep High School. Membership is open to all graduates.
