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 110-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 the highly anticipated Bull & Oyster Roast in the fall. While the pandemic may have put in-person events and visits on hold, we are optimistic about being able to host more in-person alumni gatherings this coming year. 

Additionally, as our alumni numbers have grown, so too has our staff. With a dedicated team of three, the External Relations Office has their sights set on some major goals in the near future, including the formation of an official Alumni Committee, a quarterly eNewsletter, an Alumni/Student Connect Program, and the Green & White pages, a business directory to promote your businesses, goods, and services. 

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!

“After I left Gunston, I studied game design at Maryville University and learned programming by myself. While I’m self-learning programming, I think that data science might help me in the future. So I’m applying for the data science graduate program. I’m currently interning in a transportation company doing marketing and design. Eventually, I want to get into the game industry and get another master’s degree in game design at a top university.”

“After graduating from Miami University of Oxford with a degree in Interactive Media Study & Arts Management, I headed back to China and now work for Bytedance (TikTok), where my position is focused on user growth for gaming products. “It is a pretty nice job. I appreciate its corporate culture,” said Heteng. “When we talk about the U.S. I always share my life [at] Gunston with my friends—it [was] wonderful!”

Favorite Gunston memory? “Green and White Day, how we raced with each other, we had lots of fun, it [felt] just like the Harry Potter 4 [movie] to me.”

“I feel so grateful that I had [Mr. Dize] as my art teacher and guidance counselor for life. I learned watercolor and oil painting, and believe it or not, before coming to Gunston, I didn't think I liked painting! Now, I have a great time painting alone and painting with friends. Not just painting, but also being creative. Who else would be lucky enough to see how lithography works?”
