North Shore’s Alumni Association has more than 3,000 members worldwide who stay connected to the School through the Alumni News, the Acorn magazine and by participating and attending School events and activities. It is a testament to the North Shore experience that alumni remain loyal and support school programs, both financially and with their time.

Our Alumni Board

Our Alumni Board focuses on promoting and being involved with special events, fundraising and communication. Their efforts are important and help maintain a strong connection with alumni. Class representatives also build connections by keeping in touch with classmates, providing updates on North Shore happenings, requesting support for Annual Giving and encouraging their classmates to share information for the Acorn.
North Shore is fortunate to have these many alumni whose collective energy, thoughtfulness and hard work adds so much to the life of the School.
