About Alliance College Alumni Foundation

Opened in 1912 by the Polish National Alliance, the largest Polish American fraternal insurance organization. For 75 years the Cambridge Springs, PA-based school nurtured students on the bucolic hilltop campus. Alliance College was the crown jewel of higher learning for American Polonia. Its mission was to offer immigrant children advanced educations during a time of discrimination while encouraging the study of Polish language and Polish culture in America.

In 1988, the school ceased operations. In 2001, the alumni, faculty, and staff of Alliance Academy, Alliance Technical Institute, and Alliance College came together to create the Alumni Association as a means of hosting reunions, renewing acquaintances and sharing memories and now promoting and encouraging post-secondary education. The goal of the organization is to create a fund that would allow the scholarship to continue in perpetuity.
