Celebrating CWSP and Co-educators

The start of the second semester began with good reports from the workplace. Our students are working hard, setting goals, and making plans to make the most of 2014. We thank everyone who came out to the Holy Hour hosted at the Holding Company last week. We welcomed more than 60 co-educators celebrating their commitment to the program and to our students. All had a fun time. Keep an eye out for our supervisor thank you luncheon to be held on campus April 30th! We look forward to welcoming a record breaking frosh class. We appreciate everyone's committed support as we continue to grow.



SF Symphony League Visits ICA

In December, the SF Symphony League invited ICA students to be their guests and attend the performance of Peter and the Wolf. Students and faculty attending the symphony all proclaimed it to be a wonderful experience. ICA Board member, Mary Frances Callan is to be credited in bringing the SF Symphony League to ICA for their January meeting, which provided the opportunity for ICA Junior, Sarah Gibson to speak on behalf of our ICA community and thank the League for their generous gift of symphony tickets. Hosting the SF Symphony League on our campus, was a great opportunity for their members to see first hand the unique educational experience offered for young women at ICA. All of our guests commented on the welcome they received from CLIP representatives and the opportunity to hear from Sr. Lilly about the CWSP and Ms. Graham, who shared the good news about our outstanding students.
