Alumni Giving

Since our first graduating class in 1999, the Southridge alumni community has grown to more than 1,200 strong. In seeking their passion, this remarkable group of individuals are making a difference in the world and we are so proud of everything they continue to achieve.
 
In speaking with our alumni over the years, they often acknowledge that the opportunity to attend Southridge changed the course of their lives; allowing them to develop their knowledge, confidence, and character, and achieve their full potential.
 
For some of them, the opportunity to attend Southridge was made possible through financial assistance.
 
Southridge was built on the desire to create a school of students with strong minds and good hearts. Since the day we opened our doors, financial assistance has been offered so that deserving, mission-aligned students and their families could join our community.
 
Funded through the generosity of donors, financial assistance makes a Southridge education a reality for over 25 students every year – students whose lives will be forever changed for having attended our school.
 
We are asking you – our alumni – to consider making the dream of attending your alma mater a reality for other deserving students. Through the creation of the Alumni Financial Assistance Fund, your support will be combined with that of your fellow grads to assist deserving students every year in perpetuity.
 
No gift is too small. It is your cumulative generosity that will change the life of a deserving young person.
 
What a remarkable way to make a difference in the world.

Director of Advancement

Alumni Stories

Joe Bird
Joe Bird was a young, enthusiastic student who thrived in school. He had high aspirations for his plans after graduation and had made his mind up about what he needed to do to achieve his goals. Joe was not attending Southridge, and it was not something he had even considered until his Grade 10 year.

Kristin Hazzard

Founding Head of School, Mr. Alan Brown believed in youth and embraced their idealism and willingness to be guided by the values of truth, tolerance, and respect. He influenced Southridge's culture so much that the spirit of who we are today can easily be traced to what he believed were the critical ingredients of a well-rounded and balanced education.
