Centennial Celebration

Dear RES community,

The year 2022 marks Resurrection College Prep’s 100th year as an institution. Over the next eighteen months, we will celebrate our past, present and future. This momentous occasion will be full of celebration and reminiscing. Founded in 1922, the Sisters of the Resurrection began educating young women in an all-girl environment beginning to instill their motto of Charity and Truth. In 1926, the first Resurrection class graduated four young women, and now, nearly 18,000 young-women have graduated from Resurrection.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Centennial Kick Off Celebration on April 1st. Over 100 alumnae join our student body to start the celebration. Below is a video we shared during the pep rally; a few of our alumnae and students shared their memories about RES. If you are interested in participating in the next video please email ebrennan@reshs.org. 

In May, we will release a calendar of events for alumnae, parents and friends as we continue to celebration 100 years of school history. Follow us on the official Resurrection Centennial Facebook page for the latest news and event updates!

If you are interested in becoming involved in the celebration, please email Liz Brennan, Director of Institutional Advancement at ebrennan@reshs.org or 773.775.6616 X142.

De La Salle,

Rick Piwowarski, Ph.D.
