Staying Connected

Welcome to The Carey School Alumni Program! We understand how important it is for you to stay connected to your school and your friends, and we're here to help.

We offer a variety of opportunities to keep you in touch. Some are purely social. Over the years, we've hosted alumni get-togethers with themes like shrimp boils and street fairs. Other events combine service with fun, from supporting Carey at Walkfest to pitching in at the food bank before touring the holiday lights.

We also make it easy to give back to the Carey community by volunteering your time. Whether it's recent graduates sharing their middle school experience or more seasoned alumni chairing events, every contribution helps keep our Carey network strong. Please see below for the many ways we help keep our alumni involved.

Keep in touch: Class Notes

One of the easiest ways to see what your fellow alumni are up to and to share your latest news is through the Class Notes section of the Carey Connection. To participate, please complete the form below. We'd love to hear from you!

Alumni giving

There are many ways for alumni to give back to The Carey School, from participating in Walkfest to supporting the annual fund. One option designed specifically for alumni is our tile recognition program.

The Tile Program

Our Alumni Tile Recognition Program was designed to give alumni a lasting way to recognize those who shaped your Carey experience. Whether in honor of your family, your class, a teacher, or another special person or group, your gift of $1,000 or more secures a personalized, engraved granite tile to line the Alumni Walkway, part of the new school entrance.

Gifts can be tailored to meet your needs. They can be in the form of a single gift, a multi-year pledge, or a joint gift among members of your family or class.

With each gift to The Carey School, you help ensure the future of quality, independent education begun three-quarters of a century ago by the Carey family. Please contact us to learn more.
