There are many ways to engage in life at The Governor's Academy after graduation. The most popular volunteer activities are listed below:
The heart of the Alumni Council corresponds to the Academy's school motto, Non sibi sed aliis, not for self but for others. The goal of the Alumni Council leadership is to actively involve and engage every alumnus in giving back to their school, through the sponsorship of programs and the promotion of kinship among alumni. The success of this leadership is defined by the extent of alumni participation in Academy affairs. If you are interested in joining the Council, please email Amy Swiniarski, Director of Alumni Relations.
Alumni Council Executive Board:
Class Secretaries serve as a liaison between The Governor's Academy and alumni/ae in their class to generate class notes for The Archon

Class Agents represent The Governor's Academy Annual Giving Program and are responsible for asking their classmates to contribute to the Annual Fund on a yearly basis. Most of their work consists of letter writing and phone calls. Class Agents are vital to the success of the Annual Giving Program and to the strength and well-being of the Academy. More volunteers are always needed, please email Ina Drouin, Director of Annual Giving.
