Administrative history

Asociación de Antiguas Alumnas Apostolado is the alumni association of the Apostolado schools of Cuba. The network consisted of seven Catholic schools across the island headed by the Archbishop of Havana. The schools promoted a highly religious educational system, with most classes taught by priests, nuns, and other clergy. The Asociación de Antiguas Alumnas Apostolado was formed in the United States after the schools were disbanded by the Castro government. The association's goals are to reunite the alumni of the Apostolado school system across the world, and promote the religious values taught by the school.
