On behalf of the St. Albans School Alumni Association, it is our pleasure to welcome you back to campus for Reunion Weekend 2024, May 2-4, 2024, to reunite, reconnect, and reminisce! While we are excited to welcome back and celebrate milestone reunions of classes ending in 4s and 9s, all alumni are welcome!

This weekend is all about you and your classmates. We encourage you to take full advantage of your time back at STA. We have a number of grand events planned for the weekend, and the Cathedral Close will be at its vibrant during the 84th Annual Flower Mart.
