The connections made at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School last a lifetime and are the ties that last beyond graduation years.

CGPS welcomes our alumni to participate in the life of the School by returning to campus year round to visit with beloved teachers, tour our facilities that are always changing to meet the needs of today’s students and their curricular interests, and see friends at our Annual Reunion events held each spring.

Please enjoy our new website which is full of news and information about the vibrant life at CGPS. We hope that it gives you a sense of the One School community fostered at CGPS which encourages the bold ideas, big questions and smart risks of our students. 

We want your relationship with CGPS to be meaningful throughout your life which means keeping in touch with us! Please use the "Contact Us" form found on this page often—we are here to keep you up-to-date with old friends and teachers, send photos and updates of moments you would like to share, and connect you with other alumni in your professional fields. We look forward to hearing from you! 

Thank you for your continued support of CGPS!
