Alumni Weekend 2021 was a success in more ways than one as alumni from across the country returned to campus for a fun-filled two days of events on October 1-2!

We kicked off the celebration with a Virtual Happy Hour the Friday before in-person events as alumnus John Wuorinen ’80, our Director of Admissions & Tuition Assistance, took alumni who joined on Zoom through how to make a craft mocktail or cocktail, along with other tips on how to create homemade drinks. In case you missed it, we invite you to click here to watch the recording and view the list of ingredients here to make your own drink.

This year's celebration on campus, honoring the classes ending in 0, 1, 5 and 6, was especially significant for the Class of 1970 which enjoyed its 50th Reunion (postponed from 2020 due to Covid) at in-person gatherings on both days. The group of classmates even had the chance to participate in the coin flip prior to kickoff of the Vikings varsity football game vs. Fort Loramie, won 29-28 by Academy in thrilling fashion.

Saturday featured a full slate of “Academy Afternoon Adventures” as alumni caught up with former faculty members including an art class co-taught by upper school art teacher David Block and Peter Haines ’60, a biology class with Joel Davis, a master class with Kevin Morrin (click here to watch), Junior Speeches from 2020 (click here to watch), an update from College Counseling (click here to watch), and the State of Columbus Academy with Head of School Melissa Soderberg (click here to watch).

We thank all of our alumni and former faculty who came back to campus this year, and look forward to celebrating again at Alumni Weekend 2022!
