Parents of Alumni

The Parents of Alumni Committee of the EAPA orchestrates social events for parents of graduates for the five most recent graduation classes. The emphasis of the activities is on “fun” rather than fund-raising and provide opportunities for parents to stay connected.


Dear Parents of Alumni,

I hope that the Fall/School Year is starting off well for all of you!

I wanted to personally welcome you to the Parents of Alumni Group. As you may or may not know, this group was formed about 5 years ago strictly as a way for parents of alumni to stay connected to each other. We have a number of events throughout the year and encourage you to take part. The Committee consists of representatives from each of the last 5 years. We absolutely welcome all parents of alumni but the five year time frame seems to be where the most interest is.

I will be chairing the Committee this year, along with the following representatives:

2013- Julie Green
2014- Linda Kinzig and Nadia Jannetta
2015- Jen Reder and Karen Lucey
2016- Nancy Adelizzi and Margaret Hondros
2017- Soly McLaughlin and Patty Wright

We have started a Facebook page-Episcopal Academy Parents of Alumni- and I encourage you to join. I envision that as a place where we can tell you about things that we are planning, happenings at EA that may be of interest and a place to share interesting things that our kids and parents are doing.

We are working hard this year to make sure that our email lists are up to date and relevant. We maintain a different list than Institutional Advancement so please make us aware of any changes or if you wish to be deleted from this group. We no longer have access to the list serve so your updates are most welcome!

Ellen Blommer-

Parent '12, '14 and '16
