Christopher Columbus High School

A Catholic School for Young Men in the Marist Tradition since 1958

Welcome Back!

A Brotherhood For Good

Dear Alumni,

As Alumni Director for Christopher Columbus High School, I have often been asked what provides me the most satisfaction in my current role. I must confess that it is being able to work with a group of outstanding alumni that truly care about continuing the traditions of Christopher Columbus High School. My message today is one of thankfulness, to all of our alumni who do so much for Columbus.

I extend a special thank you to those alumni who contribute their time, talents and heart to the programs and initiatives that benefit all Explorers and our school community. It is because of our Mentoring Program that many Explorers are able to carve out a path in their fields of study and fulfill their dreams. It is because of our Columbus Connects Program that graduates are able to network with fellow graduates and form business endeavors that benefit our community. Without the hard work, dedication, creativity and passion of the entire Alumni Association we could not make each event more successful than the last. Our Columbus family has helped shape the lives of countless alumni, current students and their families.
As Columbus moves forward and reaches new heights, it is important to remember that without the help of our alumni, the school would not be able to count on the rich traditions that it has built over the years.
Whether you are part of the Golf Tournament, Food & Wine Festival, or a Columbus Connects event, always remember that you are coming back home. I encourage all alumni to stay connected with your alma mater. Take advantage of our programs, attend alumni events, follow us on all our social media platforms and make sure we have your current contact information.  If you’d like to update your information, please send me an email at

Please know that it is an honor and pleasure to serve as your Alumni Director.  Again, THANK YOU for all that you do to support Columbus. Adelante!

We foster a family spirit among all who are committed to the success of the school and promote opportunities to work together as a community of learners.
