A Message from the
Alumni Office

Dear Nueva Alumni and Parents of Alumni,


It has been a pleasure to virtually see and hear from many of you during the fall and early weeks of 2021. The expansiveness of our global Nueva community and lifelong connections has shone through at our alumni events, and your continued engagement and active participation is very meaningful. I look forward to continuing to highlight our robust community through stories on our website, on social media, and in the upcoming edition of the Nueva magazine due next month!


As you firsthand experienced, life at Nueva truly is learning by doing and learning by caring. Our community's health, safety, and connectedness remain a top priority as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.


Some highlights from campus this year:

  • We welcomed Lee Fertig as our new head of school in July
  • We launched our Nueva Flex hybrid learning model, which provides our student-
    centered education to families in person and remotely, and implemented weekly on campus COVID testing in October
  • We hosted more than 1,000 guests from around the globe at our virtual Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day celebration in November
  • We continued to foster Nuevans' love of reading at our first virtual Book Fair in November
  • We completed two building projects on the Hillsborough campusour café expansion project and the opening of the new Science and Environmental Center, adjacent to the café and Crocker Mansion, in January

I look forward to welcoming you home to Nueva at our virtual 2021 Alumni Reunion on Saturday, June 5, to share more updates from campus and provide a space for our community to reconnect and reminisce. Thank you for leaving an indelible legacy on our community.


My continued wish of health and safety to you and your families!

Summer Opportunities
The Alumni Office is seeking interns to support archival projects over the summer of 2021. Work will be done remotely, but interns must live locally to pick up historical materials. Internships will range from four to eight weeks, and may be completed for course credit or paid.
If you're interested in learning more, please email 

We are launching an alumni working group to support and advise the Alumni Office with community, event, and programmatic offerings. All alumni and parents of alumni who are interested in learning more about the group or have an interest in getting more involved are encouraged to inquire.




Nueva is committed to being an anti-racist institution, and we currently are examining our diversity, equity and inclusion practices and community history. In July 2020, the trustee-led Racial Equity and Accountability Task Force was formed to assist the institution in navigating this crucial work.
