Alumnae Groups

AIS Alumnae Board

The Agnes Irwin School Alumnae Association has a rich history dating back to 1897, just 28 years after the school was founded. Today, it is led by the Alumnae Board. The Alumnae Board works as a partner with the school to enrich the cultural life of AIS, and fosters alumnae interaction and participation in the school community.
