Legacy Celebration

Saturday, May 25th, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The time has come for us to say our final goodbyes to Elgin Academy, and more importantly, to celebrate all that this beloved school has meant to so many people for such a long time. Please join us on Saturday, May 25th from 1:00-4:00 p.m. under the huge tent on the campus lawn. Enjoy an afternoon of reminiscing, visiting well-remembered campus spots, and renewing relationships that were all part of your time here on the hill as we honor both the Academy's unique history and its remarkable legacy. There will be a brief program starting at 1:00 p.m. with lunch to follow and the rest of the afternoon to visit our permanent history exhibit in Old Main, participate in some activities, take a tour, or just sit and talk with people you haven't seen for a while. Whether you are an alum, a current or past parent, a current or past faculty/staff member, a current student, or just a friend of the Academy, we would love to see you. Come for a little while, or stay all afternoon. We are excited to gather our whole school community one last time. 

In the words of the EA hymn, we plan to raise our colors high . . . Long Live Academy!
