The Alumnae and SAYPO boards sponsor several events throughout the year. Some are geared towards networking and advancing the careers and professionalism of Academy women; some are social and build community; and some are geared for alumnae to share their knowledge with our students.
VERITAS and SAYPO AWARDS PRESENTATION
Reunion is held the first Saturday in October and is open to ALL alumnae, alumnae parents and their significant others. It is a happy hour event held from 4 – 6 p.m. and while it honors alumnae having milestone graduation years (5, 10, 25, 50, etc.), it celebrates the entire alumnae community. Alumnae classes having milestone years plan their own individual event, usually following this all-school reunion on campus. Prior to Reunion, the Veritas and SAYPO Awards presentation are held.
Career Day is held every other year. Alumnae come to campus and speak to students, in a panel format, about their careers and the path they took to get there. In 2016 we had 80 alumnae speakers on 11 panels.
CO-ED YOUNG ALUMNAE HAPPY HOUR
A young alumni happy hour for St. Agnes, Strake Jesuit, St. Thomas, St. Pius, Duchesne, and Incarnate Word Academy. Young alumnae are considered ages 21-40.
FANNIN STREET LUNCHEON
A lunch to honor the alumnae that attended the Fannin Street location: class of 1967 and older.

MASS OF REMEMBRANCE / ALL SAINTS DAY MASS
Each year we honor all alumnae, Dominican Sisters, and 1906 Society members who have passed away the prior year at a mass of remembrance.
