JTD Alumni

Once a Greyhound, always a Greyhound.
Our vibrant alumni community spans the United States and beyond. With our regularly scheduled programming, Greyhounds stay connected long after graduation. And, while we're social distancing, we also have a vibrant online presence on Facebook , Instagram , and LinkedIn .

Let us know what’s new with you! Please email any news you would like to share. We love to hear about marriages, births, jobs, travels, and more. Let us know what you are up to by emailing Alumni Manager Carolyn Crosson.
From the Alumni Chair
From the first school Aunty Cathryn and Uncle John started out of their home in Brentwood to our beautiful campus "above the angel city," John Thomas Dye has always been about community. It is unique in its deep commitment to traditions, family and dedication to building character. But what makes our community so special is you, the people.

The skills and empathy and, of course, The 5C's we learned at JTD help guide so many of us. These past two years have shown the resilience and dedication of our community.

We are grateful for each and every alumnus. To those of you who have been involved and continue to be active in our school, we thank you for your support and dedication. For those of you wanting to become more involved, we would love to see and hear from you.

I am honored to serve as your Alumni Council Chair. Thank you to our outgoing chair, Lucy Blodgett Fisher '99, for being such a wonderful steward of our alumni community. As we look to build additional engagement, we hope to hear from you and welcome you as alumni DYE-Hards.

Please send an email, submit a class note, make a donation to our Annual Fund, or give us a call.

Once a Greyhound, always a Greyhound.
