Save the Date for Homecoming 2018


Shady Side Academy is just over two months away from celebrating Homecoming and Reunion weekend on Sept. 28 and 29, 2018. Classes ending in 3s and 8s will hold reunion gatherings throughout the weekend. We hope you have the date saved to come home to campus.


The most recognizable change to the Senior School campus is the newly constructed McIlRoy Center for Science and Innovation. There will be a few opportunities to see this impressive new facility. The Alumni and Faculty mixer will be held in the space on Friday, Sept. 28, beginning at 6:30 p.m., and the building will be a part of the campus tours on Saturday beginning at 11:30 a.m. Don't miss the chance to see this transformative space!


Also new to the schedule this year is the Welcome Tent. Staff and volunteers will be there to greet you as you arrive on campus and provide information on the weekend's activities and events. In addition, RSVP lists, nametags, maps and even a last-minute registration opportunity will be available at the Welcome Tent.


Please watch your inbox and mailbox for more details and registration information arriving later this month. Forward this along to classmates so everyone has the opportunity to update their contact information with the Alumni & Development Office in order to receive all Homecoming and Reunion related information.


Homecoming registration opens Aug. 1, 2018. SSA can't wait to see all of you in September.
