Alumni Opportunities

Promote Your Organization

Let Heathwood connect you with others who have also made educating the next generation their priority.

Please register your business or organization in the Heathwood Business Directory, which is made available to all Heathwood families. Contact our Alumni Director, Beth Robinson, to be added to the list.

Heathwood offers two excellent advertising opportunities to its alumni and families. Heathwood hosts the Annual Auction every spring and produces an extensive auction catalog. The Highlander Athletics Booster Club (HABC) also publishes the Athletics Playbook, which lists all teams and rosters for the academic year. Because these magazines reach so many Heathwood families, they are excellent advertising channels that benefit both your business and Heathwood. For more information, please contact Erin Pope about the auction catalog at or the HABC about the playbook at

Join the Alumni Council

The Council comprises alumni of all ages who work with the Alumni Relations Coordinator to reach out to their classmates, meet quarterly to plan projects/events, and advise. Council members may invite fellow alumni to events, get life updates, solicit their Annual Fund support, or start planning reunions. Contact us for more information about how to get involved with Alumni Council.

Host International Students 

Our growing international student population requires more Heathwood families to open up their homes. Most of our international students are from China, hoping for a better education and an increased chance of college acceptance in the US. Contact Alison Edwards for more information.
