Community & Philanthropy


Ancona’s award-winning academic program and small-school intimacy result in alumni who achieve, who are creative and thoughtful, and who care passionately about issues that affect our communities. We enthusiastically welcome our Alumni back with the intent of nurturing important relationships formed within our walls as well as building new connections. If you are an Ancona alum, we want to hear from you!

The Alumni Association
Calling all alumni! Please update your contact information on the form below so we can reconnect. We’d love to include you in our alumni newsletter and send you invitations to upcoming alumni events.
Join the Ancona Alumni Group on Facebook today. Find out about upcoming events and what other alums are doing from your graduating class and beyond. To request more information on the Ancona Alumni Association, please get in touch with the External Affairs Office at 773.924.2356 ext. 223.

Pay It Forward!
Only an alum truly knows the transformation an Ancona education provides. Contribute to the very same program that impacted your academic life and beyond. Support Ancona’s remarkable program and teachers by making a donation to Ancona’s Annual Fund. The Annual Fund helps support enriching experiences that take our students out of the classroom and immerse them in Chicago and beyond. All of these experiences require additional resources and work hard to give students remarkable lessons in thinking for life. 

Ancona could not exist without the time and talent our volunteers have shared through the years. Every volunteer makes us a stronger community. Volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to, the Alumni Gala Committee, Alumni Admissions Events, and Alumni Event Ambassadors.
