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!

2020 Alumni Reunion cancellation
Dear CGPS Alumni,

With the developing news of COVID-19 and the announcement that Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School closed early, we are writing to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2020 CGPS Reunion scheduled for April 25 and are postponing the event until a later date. As is the case with our peer New York City independent schools, CGPS is approaching the planning of large-gathering events with an abundance of caution.
We know this news is disappointing, but we hope you understand that the well-being of our School and the CGPS alumni communities is our first priority. We will let you know about further alumni programming once it has been confirmed.
As this situation evolves, we are incredibly grateful for the strength and unity of everyone at CGPS. We thank all of our alumni for your support as we work to keep our community healthy. Please feel free to reach out to any of us individually or to Bennett Kushnick, Advancement Associate, at 212-749-6200 x 270 or
Dr. Bill Donohue
Head of School
Alec Budow ’11, Matthew Melinger ’03 and Andrew Ruben ’08
