Our Community


Once a Cougar, always a Cougar.

A strong alumni network is a reflection of all that Curtis has become and is an integral part of its future as we head into the school’s centennial anniversary in 2025-26. The idea that Curtis is more than a school—a second home to its students—is a feeling shared by students across the grades, by Curtis parents, and by our alums. It is the feeling of belonging, acceptance, and knowing that you will always be welcome. As former students, you played an essential role in the history of our school; as an alumnus, you continue to be treasured members of our Curtis community. We invite you to stay connected to Curtis, and we offer you a variety of ways to do so.

Alumni Council

Your involvement in Curtis, your memories, and your insights as former students and accomplished alums are essential fuel for the school today and in the future. Be a part of our incredible alumni community that spans several decades! Join us in the excitement of year-round events and engaging programs designed to keep us connected. The Alumni Council gathers a few times a year, offering you opportunities to stay in touch with both the school and your fellow graduates.

If you would like to get involved, email the Curtis Alumni Office at alumnioffice@curtisschool.org.

Alumni Community Service Grant

Since its inception in 2017, this Curtis School Alumni Community Service Grant has helped 18 Curtis alumni to make a significant impact on various charities and individuals.

To apply for the Curtis Alumni Community Service Grant, complete the online application by Friday, March 15. Once all applications have been received, a panel of Alumni Council members will review them to determine the recipient(s) of this year’s grant.

By reflecting the Curtis School's purpose statement,  “Our graduates have purpose beyond themselves: they recognize how their contributions can bring about change and positivity, and understand their responsibility to the greater good,” last year's grants went to Noa Blackman '19, Brooke Friedman '18, Avery Gough '18, Campbell Klein '18, and Leah Miller '23.
