As alumni, you are among the School’s richest resources. United by the experiences you shared as students and your love for this place we affectionately call our “Home Beside the Shore,” you share a common bond. Whether you studied at Knox for one year or seven, in Cooperstown or on the Saint James campus, this section of our website is for you. Here, you will find the information and tools you need to stay connected with your alma mater and with each other.
Semper ad Lucem!
All former students who have attended Knox for a full trimester are invited to become part of The Knox School Alumni Association upon their graduation from high school. Because Knox alumni live across the United States and all over the world, they require a strong Association with a highly functioning Council to maintain a significant voice in the life of the Association and the School to which they all owe so much.
Each year, a slate of new and continuing Alumni Association Council members is elected at the Annual Meeting of The Knox School Alumni Association held at Reunion in June. We are grateful to the individuals who are generously serving their Alma Mater in this capacity. If you wish to become more involved in the Association, please contact one of the following officers or committee chairs:
