Stay Connected

Dear Alumni,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! It was a busy summer planning for the fall, working with our alumni interns Owen ’20 and Paige ’18, and connecting with alumni. We are off to a great start at Oakwood, especially now that we have a fabulous kitchen and cafeteria on the secondary campus. It’s a beautiful space that is already bringing our students, faculty and staff closer together. 

I also love our new theme for this school year...Forward Together! As Jaime Dominguez shared in his recent letter to the community, “we have identified a theme for the last few school years to inspire and help guide our collective experience. This year’s theme captures our intention to forge a new kind of togetherness. It highlights that we have common goals and a collective vision. Ultimately, what drives us Forward Together is the shared work we do towards empowering students to be proactive and positive members of society.” To read more about what’s happening this fall, please click here

I'm excited to share that almost 400 Oakwood Alumni have joined The Lot and are able to connect directly with classmates, faculty and staff, become or find a mentor, browse the job board, stay on top of the latest Oakwood news and so much more. We hope you'll join The Lot today to share your own news and engage with fellow alumni.

I look forward to building more Oakwood moments with you and finally gathering together again in person soon. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or needs. 

Thank you for your support and for staying connected to Oakwood!

Cheers,
Christie Guevara
Director of Alumni Relations

  • LEARNED

    If you haven't had a chance to listen to Learned the podcast, you can catch up on all episodes HERE! On Learned, we're looking beyond test scores and college acceptance rates to understand how education can shape the future of our society — and what kind of teaching we need to bring us there.

    Oakwood alum Tristan Friedberg Rodman '11, Director of Co-Curricular Programs Ivan Johnson, and Director of Alumni Relations Christie Guevara had candid conversations with educators, parents, and alumni about the educational issues that matter most to them. The episodes in Season 1 spans a wide range of topics — from creativity to entrepreneurship, social justice to mental health, technological change to equity and inclusion at private schools.
