Our alumni are those who embody and extend text, soul, and culture far beyond the walls of 2501 Elliott Avenue. Our hope at The Seattle School is to be led by you, alumni, and your stories – how you labor to live out your calling among the people and communities they serve – and, where appropriate, to join and partner with you as you seek to serve God and neighbor.
The Office of Students & Alumni, the Alumni Quad, and our growing number of Alumni Chapters seek to carry forward the The Seattle School’s alumni mission through:
- Creating opportunities for alumni to connect with and care for each other well across the nation and around the world
- Providing creative and enjoyable ways to continue conversation and connection with The Seattle School
- Supporting alumni vocation and calling through lifelong learning and skill-building
The Alumni Quad is an advisory group made up of four alumni who serve the Alumni Association by advising the Office of Students & Alumni on your behalf. They create, facilitate, and evaluate alumni projects and events and meet with alumni near and far to foster connection and support. Membership is a one-year commitment of 10 service hours each month. If you are interested in joining, contact Paul Steinke, Vice President of Student and Alumni Development.

Alumni Chapters act as hubs for graduates across the United States. Each regional facilitator offers resources to benefit local alumni, facilitates an Awaycoming event in their area each October, and represents regional alumni to the Office of Students & Alumni in their mission to join and partner with alumni locally, nationally, and across the globe.Find a Chapter

Alumni are active participants in conferences, and events hosted by The Seattle School. Symposia, Awaycoming, and the Alumni Lecture Series are annual gatherings designed for, with, and in honor of you — our alumni.
Alumni have lifetime library privileges. You may request that the library send you a reasonable number of articles and/or book chapters (within copyright restrictions) to help with your lifelong learning. As staffing allows, limited reference and research support is available by appointment (in person, by email, or by phone). Local alumni may borrow physical books and audio-visual materials and have on-site access to the online databases.
