Alumni Weekend

Don't miss Alumni Weekend 2020!

Whether you are celebrating your 50th Reunion or attending your 15-year reunion, Alumni Weekend is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with fellow alumni and The Episcopal Academy community at large.

For the first time, we will start Alumni Weekend on Thursday, April 30, kicking the weekend off with our Episcopal Academy Golf Tournament and a preview of the Upper School Musical, Fiddler on the Roof.

This year we will celebrate the following classes: 1940, 1945, 1955, 1960, 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, and 2005. All alumni (reunioning and non-reunioning) are invited to attend every Alumni Weekend event, unless the event is noted with an asterisk.

We hope you will join us back on campus to learn how EA has both changed and remained the same, watch EA athletes compete, learn about our students’ experiences, and most importantly, reconnect with classmates.

For more information, please contact the Alumni Office for more information: 484-424-1785, alumni@episcopalacademy.org.
