Alumni Association

Welcome Home!

Graduates of Bishop Guilfoyle and Altoona Catholic High School are automatically members of the Alumni Association. The Bishop Guilfoyle Alumni Association is all about pride...pride in BG! Whether or not you graduated from BG, you're eligible for membership in the Alumni Association. There are no dues, but your spirit and support are welcome. While the Alumni Association's home is nestled in Central PA, its reach extends across the state, the country and around the world. Alumni Association members live in every county in Pennsylvania, nearly every state in the United States, and in several countries around the world.

Our Goal

The Alumni Association's goal is to help alumni and friends stay connected with the school and each other. We do this through the Purple & Gold, and by sponsoring educational and social events and gatherings.


Whether you're an alum, friend, or student, participation in the Alumni Association is a great way to show your BG pride. Your participation is also a vote for the value of a BG education and enables the Alumni Association to do great things for our alumni, students, and alma mater. Keep current with publications such as the Purple & Gold magazine and e-newsletter and be sure to visit the website regularly for updates. Watch for us on Facebook and YouTube!

Alumni Association Board

The Alumni Association Board members for 2016-17 are happy to help you stay connected with your alma mater. Feel free to contact us with programming ideas and suggestions . Get involved! We welcome your input and encourage your participation!
