The mission of the Association is to provide support to Classical High School (the “School”) in Providence, Rhode Island. The Association shall achieve its mission by:

  • Preserving and supporting the tradition of excellence of the School;
  • Building and maintaining relationships among the School’s alumni and friends;
  • Raising funds for activities of both the School and the Association;
  • Enhancing the educational experience of current students at the School.

Thought Leadership: Why We Do What We Do

The Alumni Association was founded on the idea of giving back to the beloved school. Founding President Guy Pirolli ’73, had his daughters enrolled at the school at the time when city budgets were getting reduced. He saw firsthand the impact of these cuts. Guy was motivated to get his fellow alumni together to strategize ways they could raise money in support of the school and the Classical High School Alumni Association (CHSAA) was born.

CHSAA is committed to turning loyalty into action. Our gratitude motivates us to give back to our community and to strive to Keep Classical Strong.

Impact of Support

This year CHSAA gave more than $50,000 in funds to the school.

This chart indicates how that money was allocated to the programs we sponsor. We would like to grow our support to Art and Food & Clothing in 2018.
