General Information

  • I’d like to visit the new school building located at 345 Chambers Street. What are the steps I must take? 

Please email us at [email protected] with your request. We will do our best to accommodate you. Tours are usually scheduled from 3:30PM – 5:00PM, after school hours, so as not to disturb the students and teachers.

Please Note: Visits must be announced and alumni should be accompanied at all times during the visit by Alumni Association staff or faculty members.

  • Can I get a tour of the old school building located at 345 E 15th Street?

Unfortunately, the Alumni Office cannot coordinate independent tours of the old building. However, we do facilitate access for tours once a year as part of the All-Class Reunion Weekend. Email us at [email protected] to find out when the next tour and/or Stuy Reunion Weekend is scheduled.

  • How can I purchase Stuyvesant merchandise? 

The Alumni Association is proud to sell official Stuyvesant merchandise for students, teachers, and general fans – past and present. Our online store is linked here. Please see below for our Store FAQ.

  • I’m looking for ways to connect with my fellow Alumni and stay up to date on happenings at Stuyvesant. Where can I look? 

The Alumni Association offers many resources to keep up with current events at Stuyvesant High School. If you are a registered alum with MyStuy, you can access a repository of our newsletters, which can be found here.

Additionally, we have a Facebook page, Facebook group (for Alums only), Instagram account, Twitter, LinkedIn page, and LinkedIn group.

We do our best to keep up with all of our Alumni, but with our growing number of 50,000+ we are bound to miss a few things! If you have any updates to share that you think should be highlighted, please email us at [email protected].

  • How does the Alumni Association determine how to allocate money from the Stuy Fund for teachers and student requests?

Students, teachers, and school leadership submit allocation requests to the Alumni Office throughout the school year. Since the Parents’ Association is unable to fund travel, many of our after school clubs and departments rely heavily on the Alumni Association to fund their expenses to tournaments and competitions. In our Alumni Spectator, we highlight the major current initiatives we support.

The Alumni Office partners closely with the Principal and school leadership to ensure that requests align with the priorities of the school and its initiatives. All allocation requests are then presented to our SHSAA Allocations Committee who approves or denies each request. Any funding requests that are more than $5,000 must also be ratified by the full Board. Decisions are largely based on the recommendations of school leadership, how many students will benefit, and the status of our current funds.

Our Allocations Committee is open to all alumni, subject to a conversation with the Committee Chair and Executive Director. Email us to get involved: [email protected].

  • I’m an Alumnus/a, why should I become a Dues-paying Member of the Association? 

All Stuyvesant Graduates are invited to join the Alumni Association. As Members, your dues allow you to gain Members-Only benefits such as early access and special pricing for events, exclusive access to our video archive and extended photo archive, and the ability to connect with fellow alumni through our Directory portal.

Membership is the lifeblood of our organization. Dues are deposited into the Stuy Fund, which is used to support Stuyvesant, its students, and alumni. For example, dues are used to fund Alumni events, communications, and support allocation requests that are made by students and faculty.

Board Elections & Nominations

  • I’m interested in joining the Board, what is the process? 

Elected Board members serve a one-year term. They must attend Board meetings, participate in committees, and contribute their expertise to better support Stuyvesant students, faculty, and alumni.

Nominations for the 2024-25 Board were due on March 15, 2024. When it is time to submit nominations for the following year, it will be announced on this page and a linked form will be available. Nominees must be a current Dues-paying or Lifetime Member. Self-nominations are encouraged.

Once submitted, our SHSAA Governance Committee reviews the submissions, interviews the candidates, and makes recommendations to the Board. Once the slate has been ratified, bios are presented to current Dues-paying Members (including Lifetime members) who submit their votes electronically.

  • What makes a great Board Nominee? 

Our goal is to have a committed board that reflects the student body of the school’s distinguished history, reflecting diversity in gender, ethnicity, age, and occupation.

Preference is given to those who have a strong history of engagement and participation in Alumni Association committees and events.

  • What is expected of Board Members? 

Our Board members must feel comfortable in applying their expertise and relevant experience to benefit the Alumni Association. They must be a proponent of our mission and use it to guide their actions while serving in the role.

Expectations include:

1. Attending every bi-monthly board meeting and any additional meetings that are scheduled as well as actively participating in at least one committee

2. Abiding by the ethical, conflict of interest and confidentiality policies of the Board

3. Making annual contributions to the Alumni Association’s Stuy Fund, pursuant to our board requirements:  If you have graduated from high school less than ten years ago, you must donate at least $500 or solicit at least $1000. If you graduated more than ten years ago, you must donate at least $1000 or solicit at least $2000.

A comprehensive outline of duties and guidelines on conduct can be found in the Director and Trustee Handbook.

  • I’m a Dues-paying or a Lifetime Member of the Alumni Association. How do I vote? 

All members will receive an email from us when the polls have opened. It will include a link to sign into your MyStuy account to vote electronically. Biographies of the nominees will be available on this website and linked in the form.

Keep in mind that annual dues provide membership through the end of the month of the following year. For example, if you submit your dues during the month of April in 2023, your membership is valid until April 30, 2024.

Alumni Information/Database

  • Why do we have an Information/Database Policy? 

The Stuyvesant HS Alumni Association takes the privacy of our alumni extremely seriously. We want to ensure that our alumni feel comfortable giving their information to the Association freely and that we can confidently confirm what the information will be used for.

  • Who has access to my information in the database? 

Only registered alumni are allowed to access our database as a tool to reconnect with classmates. Once authenticated, the Online Directory gives access to the following information: name, graduation year, email, education, occupation and primary city.

In order to protect your privacy, all other information in our database is strictly used for official Alumni Association communication (e.g. newsletters) and events. We do not promote or allow the promotion of activities outside of the Association, including what would otherwise be activities involving alumni.

No outside organization has ownership or access to our database, nor will anyone gain access for anything other than Alumni Association business.

  • I’d like to connect with one of my classmates. How can I find their contact information? 

Once you’ve logged into the website and confirmed your identity, you may access our Online Directory to search for fellow alumni. Alumni can be searched for based on their name, graduation year, occupation, or primary city.

  • I have changed my email, phone number or mailing address. How do I inform the Alumni Association? 

It is important to us that our records are accurate to ensure that we are able to keep you updated on Stuy happenings and connect you with fellow alumni. If you have changed your personal information, please email us as soon as possible at [email protected] or give us a call during normal business hours (M-F, 9-5pm): 212-312-4894.

  • Does the Alumni Association have information for teachers or other faculty? 

The SHSAA does not generally maintain information for non-alumni teachers or faculty members. If you are interested in contacting a teacher or faculty member your best bet is to reach out directly to the school secretary, Natalie Acevedo at [email protected].

  • Can the Alumni Directory be used for solicitations? 

No. Use of directory information for any commercial, political or solicitation purpose is expressly prohibited. If you suspect that your information was misused, please let us know by sending an e-mail to [email protected].


  • Which scholarships do the Alumni Association currently manage? 

The Alumni Association currently gives out more than 40 scholarships annually. The amounts awarded range from $1,000 to $15,000.

With annual college tuition continuously on the rise and some even approaching $70,000, scholarships play a crucial role in the feasibility for students to attend competitive universities. The Association does its best to support where possible.

A list of established scholarships can be found here.

  • What are the requirements to start a scholarship? 

Like with designated funds, in order to start a scholarship one must contribute a minimum of $5,500 and each year award a minimum of $1,000 to a student.

Consistent with most charities, all designated gifts including scholarships will have 10% of the contribution applied to the Stuy Fund. For example, a minimum gift of $5,500 equates to a $1,000 scholarship for 5 years.

NOTE: The minimums described above are only applicable to new scholarships. Scholarships that have been previously established with different agreed-upon terms will still be honored.

  • How are the winners determined?

As you can imagine, scholarships are highly competitive and require an extensive review process. We have a standardized application across all scholarships, which includes the following components:

1. FAFSA Report,

2. Letter of recommendation,

3. Academic transcript, and

4. One essay question.

The required essay question may be specific to the scholarship, but the response may only be a maximum of 500 words.

Certain major donors have specified additional criteria, but the Scholarship Committee is ultimately responsible for selecting the most qualified candidates based on the donor’s intent. Similar to Allocations, this committee is open to all Alumni, subject to a conversation with the Committee Chair and Executive Director. If you are interested in participating, please send us an email: [email protected]

  • I’d like to contribute more than the minimum so that I don’t have to deal with the yearly hassle of replenishing the account. What happens to my money then? 

Since scholarships are restricted gifts your money will not be spent for any other allocation or purpose. For contributions that are larger than $25,000 we will open a specific designated account in our financial institution (currently Morgan Stanley) to conservatively invest and grow funds to extend the scholarship’s longevity. Reports on these investments will be made available upon request.
