Alumni News

We look forward to producing more outstanding scholar athletes like Avi'Tal Wilson-Perteete (NLS Class of 2013), who, in addition to boasting a 3.8 GPA at St. Mary’s College High School, has broken school records in the 800 meter event and medaled at the 2016 California State Championships as a Junior.  Avi'Tal's feats in the classroom and on the track earned her a scholarship to the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where she joins the class of 2021.
