Alumni Account Instructions

Dear Priory Alumni,

Since we launched the latest version of our website in September 2014, the alumni directory has been used more than 1,700 times. More than 120 alumni have requested access to the Priory weight room. The alumni pages in the site have had more than 15,000 visits. We hope you are finding these tools and resources helpful.

If you haven't signed up for a website account, please consider doing so in order to access these areas of the site!

To create an account and access the directory:

  • Click this “Login” link, or the one at the very top of this page.
  • On the login form, you’ll click “New User Registration.” Once you’ve registered, please note that it takes a day or two for us to link your registration with your record in our database. You'll receive a confirmation e-mail once your account is verified, linked and live.

Note: Alumni from the classes of 2014 onward, or who are also fathers of current students, or who are monks/faculty members at the school, do not need to register again. Your existing credentials from NetClassroom will log you in to the site, and while you're logged in you'll have access to update your information (the alumni and current parent databases are linked, so updating your information in one will also update the other) and to the alumni directory.

Once that’s done, you’ll have access to the directory, and to a form where you can update your profile and contact information.

Please note that as you update your profile information, you can choose to make certain things private from others who are searching in the directory if you’d like.

Accessing the directory:

  • You can use the link above
  • Or you can navigate to the homepage of www.priory.org and click the login button at the top of the page. The landing page that shows after you've logged in will have links to the directory and to the profile update page.
  • If you are logged in, you can also hover your mouse over "Alumni" in the main navigation menu. A link to the directory appears in the drop-down menu, and in the left-hand menu on pages in the alumni section of the site.

 

Our goal in offering tools like the directory is to make it easier for you to stay connected with the school and with your fellow alumni. If you have any questions, suggestions, comments or concerns, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@priory.org.

Many thanks,
