The Alumni Society is an independent association currently comprised of approximately 4,600 graduates from EA. Its purpose is to represent alumni; to help connect members to each other, to classmates, and to the school; and to insure alumni interests are represented within the EA Community.
Its roots go back to 1785 and thus it is thought to be the oldest Society in the Inter-Ac League, if not the Delaware Valley. It originated Alumni Prizes in Greek, Latin, English and Math, precursors to the present day Alumni Prizes. Although dues were originally required in order to be a member, this is no longer the case.
There is a Board of Managers of 16-18 who are elected by the Society’s members to a three year term each or appointed to fill a vacancy during a term. Generally, 1/3 of the Board runs for election every year; thereby providing continuity. The Board has officers currently consisting of the President, Vice-President, the Secretary, and the Treasurer.

The Alumni Society periodically plans, organizes, and presents the Awards Dinner at which recipients of various Awards are honored along with inductees into the Athletic Hall of Fame.
The Episcopal Academy Golf Tournament
Plan, organize, and conduct the annual Episcopal Academy Golf Tournament in May. This event brings together current and former parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the Academy at a local golf course followed by a reception and auction. This is the primary fundraising event for the Alumni Society and therefore provides the means with which scholarship obligations and other annual events are financed. For more information, contact EABOM@episcopalacademy.org.

For more than 80 years, the Alumni Society has purchased and presented gold charms to Inter-Ac championship athletic teams.
