  • Hutchison Alumnae Give Back

    Hutchison graduates become leaders in all aspects of their lives. We are fortunate to have an active alumnae community willing to give back to our School. Whether you are active in the Alumnae Association or agree to share your insights and mentor girls through the National Alumnae Board, we appreciate your willingness to help shape the next generation of leaders.

Mary Grimes Hutchison, Founder of Miss Hutchison's School

"The important thing about education is not the individual courses but teaching a student how to think for herself, to be self-reliant."

National Alumnae Board

Hutchison’s National Alumnae Board (NAB) is a group of outstanding alumnae from across the country who are recognized as leaders in their respective communities and are accomplished in their individual professions. The National Alumnae Board was created as a career mentoring program, offering a national network for students to explore career and life possibilities. The NAB also serves as an advisory body for the Head of School and the Alumnae Association Board.

NAB members participate in discussions with upper school girls on topics ranging from civic leadership and responsibility to college and career choices. In small group sessions, they focus on their professions and share personal experiences from their career journeys. It is a privilege to have these women return to their alma mater as mentors and role models for our young women in Upper School.

Alumnae Association Board

The Hutchison Alumnae Association is an active group of women who are committed to promoting the welfare of Hutchison School and to further advancing interest, participation and support of our fellow alumnae.
