Preserving the Past, Enriching the Future


On the morning of September 22, 1930, the first students walked through the doors of Newport Harbor High School. Two years later the first class of 54 seniors graduated and the NHHS Alumni Association was born. In the almost nine decades since then, the school and the Alumni Association have grown and adapted to current events, all the while taking care to record and celebrate the inspiring stories of the students, faculty and friends that make up our community.


What makes our school so unique is not just the long tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts, but our commitment to honoring this legacy to best educate and motivate the next generation of Sailors. In this spirit, the mission of the NHHS Alumni Association is to engage our alumni, support our scholarship program, maintain the campus museum, and preserve the rich heritage of our alma mater. 


In 2015, we were thrilled to achieve our goal of establishing two Endowments to create a source of sustained funding for our projects and establish a scholarship program. They are overseen by the OC Community Foundation, which is an excellent partner in securing and building these investments. With your help, we believe this is the best way to live up to our ideal of Preserving the Past and Enriching the Future.
