After Commencement, all graduates are welcomed into the Saint James School Alumni Association. The Alumni Council, which is made up of 8-15 elected members chosen from the Alumni Association, is the governing body of the Alumni Association.
The Alumni Council serves “to create, build, and support relationships among current students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends, in support of the School.” They do this by attending events hosted by Saint James, setting a philanthropic example, and encouraging fellow alumni to do the same.
The Council meets four times throughout the year, and 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.
