Get Involved

With almost 700 students on campus spanning the ages of 2 to18, there's always something going on. And there's always a way to get involved. While we couldn't go without our parent volunteers, we would love to have Heathwood alumni leading the pack.

Columbia Connections: This is a new program aimed to give our students real-life learning experiences. This includes professional experts speaking to classes here, or students going out into the community, participating in tours, learning new skills, or holding short-term internships. Click here for more information or contact Donnie Bain ( with questions. 

Business Connections: If you own or are part of a business that serves the Greater-Columbia area, you can be a part of our Business Directory, made available to all Heathwood families and other business connections. You can enter your information here

Class Agents: Agents work with the Alumni Relations Coordinator to reach out to their fellow classmates. They may invite them to events, get life updates, solicit their Annual Fund support, or start planning reunions. If this sounds like you, email

Host Families: 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 Blair Mason at 803-231-7718 or for more information.

Volunteers: Work alongside our parent volunteers, maintaining one of our 12 gardens, helping the Highlander Club, or serving on a committee. Susannah Cook ( can give you more details about all of the opportunities around campus.
