Alumni Weekend 2021

We are excited to welcome all Bishops home for a special Double Alumni Weekend June 4-6, 2021!

Join classmates, friends and former teachers for a few stress-free days back at the Old 160! From BBQ and beach music on Box Plaza to wine tasting in the King Center to the Annual Meeting of Alumni in Langhorne Chapel with new Head of School Garth Ainslie, we’ve planned something for everyone!

On Saturday night we’ll celebrate the joy of being back together with cocktails, dinner and dancing on the Front Lawn. And join in these other fun opportunities:

  • Shop for VES gear with Casy Williams & Taste Virginia Wines with Debbie Burton!
  • Take a campus tour. You won’t believe the transformation!
  • Commemorate the undefeated 1969 Prep League Championship football team
  • Stay on dorm for the true old-school experience
  • Reminisce poolside with a late-night cheesy western
  • Bring the whole family—we’ll have sitters who will provide fun activities for your kids!
  • And so much more!

Check out the full agenda below.

We can’t wait to see you in June!
