Biographical history

Copper Valley School, Glennallen, Alaska, is considered as a continuation of Holy Cross Mission, Holy Cross, Alaska. The Sisters of St. Ann arrived at Copper Valley School in August 1956 and introduced the Lay Volunteer movement at the school. The aim of the school was to help educate and integrate Native peoples of Alaska, that they might more easily become the professional leaders of the future. The Sisters withdrew when the school closed in 1971. In the 1980s, the Copper Valley School Association was formed to keep alive the spirit of Copper Valley School (CVS).
