At more than 10,000 members, the Woodward Academy Alumni Association is a vast network of lifelong War Eagles. We hope that your participation in the association deepens your affinity for your alma mater, and we encourage you to take on leadership roles to extend the Academy’s legacy.

Class Delegates

The Class Delegates are the key volunteers responsible for serving as a liaison between the Alumni Office and their class. Class Delegates are encouraged to use email, text messages, personal phone calls, and social media to engage with their classmates and keep them connected to Woodward Academy. For more information about becoming a Class Delegate, email alumni@woodward.edu.

Reunion Volunteers

Reunion volunteers are the key to a fun and successful event. Alumni have the best insight into the kind of celebration their classmates would enjoy, and that makes a real difference in the quality of the experience. Whether calling friends to invite them to Homecoming and Reunion Weekend, assisting in the planning of your party, or asking others to pledge their financial support to the school, alumni involvement is what makes it a great occasion for everyone. For more information about becoming a Reunion Volunteer, email alumni@woodward.edu.

Big Chill Committee

The Big Chill is an annual alumni event that supports need-based student financial aid through a live and silent auction. Every year, volunteers form a host committee to plan and organize the event while securing sponsors and auction items.

Connect With Students

Join us for a Student Alumni Ambassador (SAA) lunch and learn as a speaker! Through alumni-led workshops and meetings, students are given insight into the professional world and learn about networking and philanthropy.  We also have assemblies throughout the year for Upper School students to hear from successful alumni in various fields.

Alumni Board of Directors

The Alumni Association Board of Directors is the governing body of the Woodward Academy Alumni Association. Members are elected to three-year terms. If you have questions or would like to nominate a thoughtful leader you know, contact the Alumni Office.
