Marywood Academy Alumnae

Dear Students of Marywood Academy, always remember that you have roots in this Dominican community. Whether you attended Marywood Academy for a year, or beyond, you have the seeds of faith and knowledge to live your life emboldened by faith and serving with joy.

No matter where you are, the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids offer up prayers and blessings in your name. We pray that you are inspired by faith, love, knowledge, justice, and truth in your life today.

Don’t miss homecoming celebrations, reunions, and more.

Keep that “Veritas” spirit alive! Stay connected with classmates, teachers, and the Dominican Sisters of Grand Rapids. These gatherings are great fun, as well as an opportunity to reconnect and get inspired by interesting speakers and programs.



Every fall the Dominican Sisters host alumnae at gatherings such as the Annual Reunion Luncheon and All Class Reunion.

Is your class planning a reunion? See upcoming events in News & Events at the bottom of this page.

Would you like to engage with classmates and suggest or help plan a gathering? Contact a member of the Marywood Alumnae Council in care of Alyssa Morillo-Scheidt.
