Our alumni are as vibrant as Aiglon. The Development & Alumni Relations Office and the Alumni Association work together to advance the school, connect alumni and perpetuate lifelong friendships.
The Development & Alumni Relations team at Aiglon strengthens the relationships, reputation and resources the school needs to thrive. The team handles alumni and parent relations, communications, and development. The following resources are also available to help reconnect Aiglon alumni with the School and each other.
As Aiglon alumni, you are part of a remarkable community with a unique shared experience that doesn't need to end after you graduate. There are many ways you can get involved by helping our students and in turn, reconnect with your fellow alumni.
With internships, summer school, summer camps, etc. canceled, students are facing a glut of free time. Any opportunity that offers students a chance to develop their skills or learn more about a specific profession or industry through tasks/projects would go a long way in helping them apply their learning from the classroom to real life, not to mention enhancing and improving their future university applications. The nature of remote work allows all of our students to benefit without having to obtain necessary work permits, visas, etc. for opportunities globally.
Remember that many of our students are multilingual, multicultural, and adept at utilising technology.
Please contact Karen Sandri if you’re able to help our students.
How is university life different from Aiglon? What do you wish you knew?
Partnering with the Department of College & Careers Counselling, the alumni office will organise a webinar for Year 12 and 13 students to hear directly from recent Aiglon graduates about their journey from the mountain to university.
Please contact Karen Sandri if you’re interested in speaking with our students.
While the Covid-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we are committed to taking additional proactive measures to protect our community, on and off campus. Our scholarship students, in particular, may be struggling to cover unexpected costs related to travel, technology access, health and wellness, and other unforeseen circumstances. Please consider offering your support to the Aiglon Emergency Relief Fund during this challenging time.
Please contact Reid Alan Ching if you'd like to learn more about making a gift.
Don't have time? No problem. Here are simple ways you can help.
A significant number of our students come to Aiglon based on the suggestions and recommendations of their friends. Simply talking about your experience, recommending Aiglon, and citing Aiglon on your CV, LinkedIn page, and bio helps raise the visibility of our School globally.

Aiglon College Alumni Eagle Association
Sandro Corsini (Delaware, 1975), President of ACAEA, serves as an advocate for Aiglon alumni, promoting their interests globally, connecting and strengthening the bonds between alumni of different generations and countries. Sandro works closely with the School and regional representatives in the USA, Canada, Europe, and UK through the Friends of Aiglon College (FOAC) groups.
Alumni Community Platform
Aiglon Life is a password-protected online community for alumni to connect and network. Through the Aiglon Life portal, alumni can read and submit class notes, sign up for events, message other alumni, and post professional opportunities. They can also update contact details and search for friends. Results can be sorted by various criteria including class year, city, country, and occupation.
The Aiglon Magazine
Printed twice a year in winter and spring, this award-winning publication is not a typical school magazine. With increased use of social media, alumni are connecting in real time to share memories and stories. Aiglon Magazine is designed to bring the spirit of studying and living on the mountain to print. Contact us to receive your copy.
❯❯❯ Update from Patience Fanella-Koch, Director of College & Careers Counselling
(as of 27 March 2020):
Covid-19 Response by Universities and Colleges
As we all make adjustments to our daily lives, schools and universities around the world are quickly transitioning to online learning platforms and changing policies for admission. University presidents and deans are making sure that current Year 13 students aren't penalised for the canceled end of year exams, while at the same time making adjustments to the resources (online tours and information sessions) and evaluation process and requirements for Year 12.
Furthermore, they understand that disruptions may significantly alter the trajectory of younger students' extracurricular, athletic and other pursuits including summer programmes or work experiences. Columbia University, among others, have reported, "... college applications will likely look different than they have in the past. We remain committed to our holistic and contextual review process that considers the individual circumstances that shape each applicant's journey." Tufts University has declared SAT/ACT testing as optional for the next three years, and MIT will no longer require nor accept SAT subject tests for consideration . These are just a few of the many institutions setting model examples during such trying times.
How does this affect Aiglon students?
Just as an Aiglon education focuses on the balanced development of the entire student, universities will now take an even closer, more holistic view into our applicants, placing emphasis on personal development, initiative, creativity, academic curiosity, leadership and more.
Early Admission Results
Many universities around the world will release final admission decisions in the next week or so. However, some good news was received a few months ago from applicants who applied to the US through early decision admission plans. We congratulate Year 13 students already bound for:
Bryn Mawr College
New York University (3)
St. Lawrence University
University of Pennsylvania
University of Rochester
