Alumni Council

The Saint James School Alumni Council was formed to provide meaningful engagement opportunities for all SJS alumni. In partnership with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, the Alumni Council oversees the Class Agent system and works to build an alumni community of support for the School, specifically encouraging financial support through the Annual Fund.

The Council meets four times throughout the year. Members help organize Alumni Weekend events and assists in planning a variety of regional alumni gatherings.

The Alumni Council is comprised of alumni of the School representing a range of graduation years. The Senior Prefect, Headmaster, and members of the Office of Development and Alumni Relations attend meetings as ex-officio members. Members are committed to a three-year term.

If you are interested in serving on the Alumni Council, please contact Margaret McGuigan in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations to submit your name for consideration.
