Alumni Council

Alumni Council Mission Statement

The Alumni Council of The Governor’s Academy seeks to promote and support the Academy by connecting alumni with each other and engaging Academy students in their senior year, creating opportunities for alumni to contribute talent, time, and treasure to initiatives supporting Academy related events and programs, and by serving as a link between the Alumni and the Academy. 

Alumni Council Leadership

At the heart of the Alumni Council the spirit of non sibi sed aliis (not for self but for others) lives on. The Alumni Council leadership strives to inspire every alumnus to give back to the Academy, to spread the spirit of kinship among our alumni, and to secure the future of our great school. Our success depends upon you—please join the Alumni Council! Alumni Council nominations are due by April 14, 2023.
