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 Major Gifts & 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! 

NCCS Alumni Award Winners

The Alumni Award is presented each year to honor an alumna or alumnus who best embodies the statement from the school’s mission: New Canaan Country School inspires students to be lifelong learners with the courage and confidence to make a positive contribution to the world.

The Alumni Council reviews all nominations during the council's fall meeting. The award recipient is determined by majority vote.
