Marywood Alumnae Reunion

The final Marywood All-School Reunion will be Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015, from noon to 2:30 p.m. at the former Marywood campus. The event is complimentary, but you must register by Aug. 17 for the catered lunch. Otherwise, you can bring your own picnic lunch. Please RSVP to either Moira Fisher at or JoAn Pettite at An email is required rather than an rsvp on Facebook as there is a chance it could be missed.

Please join us on the Marywood campus for a day of fun and Sprite Spirit as we say hello to old friends and goodbye to a place that means so much to us. Pass the word to your friends!

We must have an accurate count to provide enough food. Please RSVP.

Keep in touch!

The Alumnae Association has an active group on Facebook. It’s a monitored group, so you must submit a request to join. Get started here!

If you would like to plan a class reunion, the Sisters of Providence alumnae relations manager can help. Please email or call  812-535-2817.



The former St. Joseph Academy was purchased in 1934 from the Dominican Sisters whose motherhouse was in Cuba. It was primarily a college prep high school for girls of Orange County and a boarding school for girls of other localities. A limited number were accepted for grade school; this discontinued in 1949. Expansion of enrollment led to a new location at Nohl Ranch in Orange County and was dedicated on Dec. 5, 1964. The school also attracted international students from nine countries. Marywood was closed in 1980.
