As we prepare to celebrate the legacy of Elgin Academy and conclude this school year in a manner that is befitting of an institution that is 185 years old, we have made some updates to the school calendar.
- We will be hosting a series of special events Founders' Week, February 20th-24th, to honor the 185th anniversary of the founding of Elgin Academy.
- The Elgin Academy Legacy Celebration will take place on Saturday, May 25th and will be open to the entire EA Community, past and present.
- The last day of school in all divisions has been moved forward from Wednesday, June 5th to Friday, May 31st. This change is designed to provide appropriate closure to the Elgin Academy journey while giving our faculty members more time to prepare for their eventual transitions.
- Eighth-grade graduation will now be on Thursday, May 30th at 6:30 p.m.
- There is no change to the schedule of senior events, including Honors Convocation on Friday, May 31st at 7:00 p.m. and Commencement on Saturday, June 1st at 10:00 a.m.
- Please see the updated EA Event Calendar for more details about the updated timing of our traditional end-of-year events, including divisional school-day closing ceremonies.
If you have any questions about these calendar updates, please contact Doug Sept at email@example.com
