We are more than 3,000 strong and growing every year. We serve as a valuable resource to strengthen friendships, promote networking and to give back to the Holland Hall community through mentorships and guidance of current students.
The Holland Hall Alumni Association Board works every year to support our school through local and national events specifically designed to maintain our strong connection to each other and to Holland Hall. We are always looking for eager alumni to join our board, volunteer for committees, or simply attend events and reconnect.
November 1 - 2
This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the annual Lessons and Carols Service at Trinity Episcopal Church. Alumni and retired faculty are invited to perform with the Holland Hall Concert Choir, conducted by Holland Hall Choral Director, Lauren Fogarty and guest conductor, Steve Dyer, Holland Hall Choral Director from 1996-2019.
Father Urmson-Taylor and music director, Dr. Thomas Matthews, started the service of Nine Lessons and Carols, one of the longest standing traditions of Holland Hall, in the early 1960’s. For many years the performance of the Concert Choir was directed by David Rollo, Holland Hall Choral Director from 1967-1995. Following this, Steve Dyer, Director of the Walter Arts Center and Fine Arts, conducted the music from 1996-2018. Since then, Lauren Harper-Forgarty, 6th-12th Choral Director, has led the Concert Choir performance during the service.
The tradition of alumni participation in the Lessons and Carols Service began in 2013 in celebration of the 50th anniversary. The response was so overwhelmingly positive the decision was made that every five years alumni would be extended the opportunity to sing with the Concert Choir.
The Service of Nine Lessons and Carols is an annual affirmation of Holland Hall's close affiliation with the Episcopal Church. The opportunity for current students to sing and engage with alumni provides a valuable connection to the rich history of Holland Hall within the Tulsa community.
Please consider joining with us for this meaningful service.

The Dutch Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 2007 to recognize individuals and teams who, through their athletic achievements, have brought honor to themselves, their school, and the community. Inductees are honored along with current student-athletes at the Dutch Athletic Hall of Fame and Sports Ceremony held each May. The ceremony provides current student-athletes and their families the opportunity to celebrate the great tradition of Holland Hall sports with alumni athletes being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Upper School student-athletes and teams will also be recognized for their athletic accomplishments during the previous school year.

The Holland Hall Alumni Association and its board live by one simple mission: engaged alumni. "Strong connections. Lasting relationships." This slogan influences every decision we make as a board. But because our entire alumni base does not still live in Tulsa, engaging our alumni, strengthening our connections, and cultivating lasting relationships cannot be accomplished in Tulsa alone.
Holland Hall has hosted alumni receptions in cities like Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., New York City, Denver, and Salt Lake City, to name a few.

We need Class Correspondents for the 2023-2024 school year. Class correspondents are liaisons to Holland Hall and your graduating class. They help to organize your Saturday reunion events but can also do so much more. Class Correspondents can contact the school on their classmates' behalf with news for the school magazine, they work with the Director of Alumni Relations to make professional connections, and assist in tracking down missing alumni and outdated contact information.
If you are interested in serving as a Class Correspondent please email Richard Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
