Whether you attended NCE’s Children’s School in the 1930s, remember Baker Demonstration School as part of National Louis University, or graduated more recently, we appreciate all members of the Baker alumni community!

Each Baker student first makes a mark as a citizen of the school and, after graduation, as a citizen of the world. Such is the nature of progressive education. Indeed, the school has stood the test of time in part because of the distinguished accomplishments of its alumni.

Haven’t heard from us lately? We invite you to fill out our Alumni Connections Form to update your contact information so we can be in touch with updates about school news and alumni events.

Moreover, if you haven’t had an opportunity to visit the campus lately, please contact Gena Johnson, our Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations, to schedule a personal tour. You are certain to be both moved by the familiar and impressed by everything we have accomplished since your last visit!
