How to get connected and stay involved with Corlears School's alumni community.
Corlears is a small school, but our community has a big heart — and many ways to get involved.

Every dollar has a lasting impact — not just on  students attending Corlears today, but on all children who come through our doors.

There are a variety of opportunities available for current and alumni community members to get involved by volunteering their time. 

THE ROAD TO OUR FIRST ENDOWMENT

The Tuition Equity Fund (TEF) will serve as the foundation for Corlears School’s first-ever endowment. Corlears has committed significant resources to become the leading school for young children driven by diversity and equity. 

Through the Tuition Equity Fund, we strive to cultivate inclusion and belonging for all community members for generations to come. Your support of the TEF brings to life our vision of a vibrant and connected community like no other in New York City.

How to get connected and stay involved with Corlears School's alumni community.

Why Choose Seedlings at Corlears?

The stories of student experiences at Corlears and the depth of understanding that our alumni apply to their continued studies and subsequent careers is a reflection of their early years of preparation. In turn, the stories that our alumni bring back to the Corlears community gives current students confidence in the possibilities that lie before them.

"Corlears taught us the importance of empathy and thoughtfulness [...]. And so, as a young adult, I made a choice to face every single thing that scared me — to be my own window and stare straight at the hard things, to become my own bridge, and to walk toward life."
