Alumni at a Glance

Professional Children’s School alumni play an important role within our community. All former students are lifelong members of our Alumni Association whether they graduated from the school or attended only for a short time at any stage of their lives.  As a group, we celebrate our legacy, create opportunities to build meaningful connections and foster the growth and development of the next generation of performing artists, athletes, and entrepreneurs by giving back so that others can experience a PCS education.  

Our Alumni Association Council is the representative body of the alumni community and works to enhance and advance the relationship between the school and all of its alumni through meaningful engagement, networking, volunteer involvement and philanthropic commitment. Our council members serve two terms and we meet twice a year formally and then on an as needed basis.

I’m always eager to provide opportunities for alumni to get involved. If you’re interested in becoming an alumni representative,  a member of the council, host a fundraiser or alumni mixer, or if you’d simply like to reconnect with the school, feel free to reach out to me. Our doors are always open, so come by and visit. We can’t wait to see you!

The Professional Children’s School ALUMNI ASSOCIATION COUNCIL represents the school’s alumni community, of which every individual who has attended PCS is a member. The mission of the Alumni Association Council (AAC) is to enhance and advance the relationship between the school and all of its alumni through meaningful engagement, networking, volunteer involvement, and philanthropic commitment.

AAC members serve on the council for two (2) year terms, which can be renewed.

The three pillars of the Alumni Association Council

  • Celebrate our legacy
  • Connect with our community
