Our alumni go on to lead lives of impact and purpose - and look back on their days at the corner of Frogtown and Ponus as some of their happiest. We are a first alma mater for most and hope our alumni will stay in touch as they continue their journeys beyond Country School.
Here are some of their stories - and some opportunities to stay in touch with our vibrant community and each other. Please reach out to Director of Alumni Affairs Holly Donaldson Casella '04 with any questions or to get involved as an alumni volunteer. We can't wait to hear from you!
Stay tuned for 2021-2022 events
