Portrait of an Alumna

Beyond Castilleja

Our community and the impact of Castilleja’s program extends far beyond Palo Alto. From Olympians to Presidential Cabinet members to award-winning filmmakers, Castilleja alumnae embody a powerful network of influential women across a variety of industries. Regardless of her chosen profession or level of distinction, a Castilleja graduate is a compassionate and informed leader, as well as a key contributor in her chosen community.

My education at Castilleja was instrumental in shaping my world view and showing me the significance of community and collective responsibility. I carry those lessons with me to this day.”
