Since Southpointe Academy’s first graduating class in 2005, the Titan Alumni community has proudly grown to almost 400 members who have gone on to grace the halls of some of the most renowned and prestigious post-secondary institutions around the world.
Our Titan graduates are making a difference at home and in the world in Sciences, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Arts and Humanities. They are pursuing their passions while learning and leading on their paths to success.
No matter where they are, Southpointe Titans are always glad for a chance to come home to Southpointe Academy. From volunteering as coaches to mentoring Southpointe students through Grad Panels and Career Fairs, Titan Alumni are connecting and giving back to the School in every way possible.
