We work hard to keep close connections with our alumni, not only so that we can support them along their educational and career journeys, but also because their journeys are one of our greatest inspirations as we continue investing in the lives of future leaders each year.

About Our Alumni Program

The Alumni work does not begin when they cross the stage. Inwood Academy students start to receive alumni support starting their Freshman Fall semester in high school. We gear them with information on how to fully embrace the college experience and what to expect on those campus by providing campus tours to their accepted institution. We also prepare those students that want to enter the workforce directly after graduation by setting them up with:

Interview preparation
Fully edited resume
Financial support via our Senior scholarship fund, to help with their transition to college

Many alumni return to share their experiences and encouragement with younger Inwood Academy high school students by volunteering at events, serving on an Alumni Week panel, or becoming an Alumni Ambassador.

Alumni Week

One of the most fun parts of the year for those invested in our College & Career Success program, is our annual Alumni Week, held immediately after winter break. A highlight of Alumni Week is that we have extended the programming for the first time to offer an entire week dedicated to Middle School students.

The focus of Alumni Week(s) is to help students explore and self-identify future plans that align with their interests, no matter what stage of that decision making process they are in.

“Equipping teachers to lead Alumni Week not only allows us to cater conversations to individual students, but it also encourages follow-up conversations in a way we wouldn’t be able to sustain our own,” explains Alumni Success Manager Coordinator Hazel Pina.
