  • An enthusiastic communal singing of the Central School Song, “Dear High”
  • A chance to network and connect with alumni and friends who are at the forefront of change and empowerment in our community.

Events like these make our alumni family unique. The connections we all have to each other are bounded by our rich history, the pride in our classes, and the strong foundation of academic excellence we experienced at Central.

We are always and forever Central-made.
