ALUMNI AND FRIENDS SOCIETIES

Saint Ignatius College Prep prides itself on being a unique and diverse community of students, alumni, parents, families, faculty, staff and friends of the school. The Alumni Office perceives the relationships between students, their families and the school as mutual, life-long partnerships. Becoming an alumnus of Saint Ignatius College Prep translates to becoming a part of a distinct network of men and women dedicated to lives of faith, love, service and leadership.

As an opportunity to engage with others in the school community while also supporting the school and its students financially, the Development Office partnered with volunteer committee members to create six “Alumni & Friends” societies, open to all members of our community. The goals of these various societies are to cultivate professional networks, strengthen interpersonal relationships, and foster a stronger sense of community and support.

Annual membership in each society involves a 100% tax-deductible membership fee that supports a specific fund or endowment associated with the respective society. Membership is not required to attend events hosted by a society. Discounted event ticket prices for society members are available. Please read the descriptions below for more information on the societies, what they support and the membership benefits.


The Business Society was founded in 2011 and welcomes all individuals and firms involved in the fields of business and finance. 100% of the annual membership fees directly support the Business Society Endowment, an endowment created in 2015 to support students who are interested in pursuing a career in business or finance.
