Every school loves and takes pride in its children especially if they, upon graduation, continue to revere, honor and love her. On the other hand, a school proves its worth by the number of appreciative and zealous Alumni who bear testimony to it, for only when one is separated from something he loves does he come to realize its true worth.
Orchard Lake and its Alumni Association are a mutual admiration society in a true, mutually loving sense. Orchard Lake is interested in its Alumni and helps them in every practicable way. Alumni love their Orchard Lake and they respond and reciprocate.
The Orchard Lake Alumni Association is , today, a well-integrated, smoothly functioning body, incorporated under the laws of the State of Michigan as a non-profit charitable organization. Student tuition and board pay approximately one half of the Orchard Lake Schools' operational expenses. The deficiency must be met from other sources of income. One of the most generous sources is the Alumni Association.
The purpose of the National Alumni Association is
- Sustenance of the spirit of brotherly love and mutual assistance among Alumni.
- Moral and material support of the Alma Mater.
