Virginia Episcopal School

VES is a co-ed college preparatory school for boarding and day students in grades 9 – 12. In our intentionally small, diverse and engaging community—260 young men and women and 40 faculty—we guide students to strive Toward Full Stature in their academic, ethical, spiritual and personal growth.

Alumni Weekend

With much regret, we must cancel Alumni Weekend to comply with the Virginia Governor’s mandate that no events of more than 10 people may occur before June 10.

While this is disappointing for the classes ending in 0 and 5, and especially for me as this would have been my final Alumni Weekend as your Headmaster, I care deeply about the health and wellness of our Bishop community and must comply with state guidelines. I am pleased to announce, however, several other opportunities to celebrate together:

  1. September 25-27 will be a celebration of VES’ 105 anniversary, Homecoming and the installation ceremony of Head of School Garth Ainslie.
  2. June 4 - 6, 2021 will be a major joint Alumni Weekend for the Classes ending in 0 and 5, alongside the classes ending in 1 and 6.
  3. In the coming weeks, we will be hosting a series of virtual cocktail hours for all alumni classes. Look for more information to come.

We are humbled that a number of alumni have offered to convert their Alumni Weekend registration fee into a gift to support the VES faculty.
