Over the past year, Gunston has assembled alumni volunteers to create a new Alumni Advisory Group. The group is composed of alumni from different eras (boarding school and co-ed), class years, clubs, careers, etc. The group’s purpose is to provide feedback about alumni programming and brainstorm ideas for how to increase alumni engagement. Our next spotlight is Henry Shifrin ’21.
The Gunston School has a long tradition of committed, engaged, and connected alumni. Whether you attended the all-girls boarding school Gunston or the now co-ed day school Gunston, your connection to this place and its people remains the same—strong and enduring.
Throughout the school’s 111-year history, Gunston’s mission of creating a nurturing and highly personalized learning environment has never wavered and that commitment extends beyond graduation. Once you’re a part of the Gunston community, you’re in for life.
Each year we welcome our alumni back to campus for various receptions and events ranging from varsity sporting events and alumni games, to this year's first-ever Alumni Weekend! Anyone interested in finding a lost classmate, sharing stories, career networking and mentoring, or just seeing what's going on with some old friends should get in touch with us!
