Cranbrook Kingswood Alumni Association

The Cranbrook Kingswood Alumni Association (CKAA) is committed to fostering and strengthening the relationship between Association Members and the School and its students.  Through such endeavors, the Association shall actively support and advance the mission of the School.

Support the CKAA
Get Involved
The Board meets once a month throughout the school year. Committees of the Alumni Board are the Service/Student Engagement Committee, Social/Alumni Engagement Committee Finance Committee, Cranbrook Initiatives, Kingswood Initiatives, and the Merchandise Committee. We sponsor a career fair for juniors and seniors on campus every year, and host remote alumni career panels for student clubs. Please click here if you want to get involved in the activities of the association, to volunteer for mentoring initiatives, or put forward your name or that of a classmate for consideration as a campus speaker or Distinguished Alum.
