About HCHS Foundation & Hall of Fame

The Hinsdale Central High School Foundation was founded in 1991 as a means of providing support to the High School from alumni, parents, community members, and business leaders. Since its inception, the Foundation has supported student enrichment programs including Project Achieve, a grant to help students struggling academically, and the J. Kyle Braid Leadership Program.

The Hinsdale Central Hall of Fame was established to honor alumni and/or friends of the High School who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments or service and exemplify the values and traditions of Hinsdale Central.

The Foundation also acts as a resource for Alumni groups and Reunion classes, so please keep your contact information current, which you can do through this website. We are always looking for more great ideas to support, and great volunteers to help us grow, so please drop us a note or call; we always enjoy hearing from our many friends wherever their lives have taken them.

On behalf of the Foundation's Board of Directors, and the students, faculty, and administration of Hinsdale Central, thank you for your interest and support.
