The purpose of the Jemicy School Alumni Association is to promote the interests and goals of Jemicy School by providing leadership, support, and resources for the benefit of the School community including alumni, students, parents, faculty, administration and staff.
In order to achieve this, the Association will facilitate a meaningful dialogue between the alumni and School administration, sponsor and promote events, programs and other activities designed to encourage alumni participation.

Interesting TO KNOW
Research is showing that dyslexia is genetically based and passed from parents to children. Between twenty-three and sixty-five percent of children with dyslexia have a parent who is dyslexic. It is not uncommon for dyslexia to affect several people in the same family, and most dyslexics will generally have someone else in their extended family who also struggles with dyslexia. The familial nature of dyslexia has been recognized since the beginning of the last century.
Some of Jemicy Upper School’s industrial design students are building a light aircraft with experienced light craft builders at a local sky park. Along with teachers August DiMucci and Sean Lally, a few alums have joined in, too: alum and current Jemicy trustee Nate Tower ’80; alum Steve Dziuba ’84; and alum Sam Gensler ’14, who is now teaching at the US.
Mark Westervelt, assistant head of school and director of alumni relations, is ON THE ROAD in the pop-top camper he bought and outfitted for a road trip throughout New England. He plans to catch up (in socially distanced style) with Jemicy alums, share the latest news on what's happening at Jemicy, and find out what alums and past teachers have been and are doing. His camper will announce Jemicy School and Dyslexics Achieve everywhere he goes.
