Once a Tarrier, Always a Tarrier!
The Office of Alumni Relations aims to stay engaged with Charles Wright Academy alumni the world over and encourages graduates from our first class of 1964 and onward to get involved in the life of the school and our community.
Connect with students by hosting a senior for an internship or serving as a mentor; attend an alumni event such as Homecoming, Pub Night, or a regional gathering in a town near you; submit Class Notes to Ties alumni magazine; or support your alma mater and help the next generation of Tarriers discover their potential by donating to the CWA Annual Fund.
Would you like to get involved with Charles Wright but just don’t know how? Contact Director of Development Laura Rose for ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Charles Wright has been a great place for me since I started in seventh grade. The connections that I have made with my teachers are some that I believe will last me a lifetime. Charles Wright has prepared me for life ahead by challenging me academically as well as extracurricularly. However, what I’m most thankful for is my teachers believing that I could do amazing things in whatever area I chose to pursue. The trust and the mutual expectations between students and teachers are just some of the characteristics of the amazing relationships that I have formed at CWA and plan to maintain through college and beyond.
