Alumni Weekend


Save the date for Alumni Weekend 2023

Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7, 2023

Thanks to all who joined us on campus for Alumni Weekend 2022! We braved the elements, celebrated achievements, rekindled friendships, ate way too many sticky buns, and reminisced about our time at George School. It was great to be together again! Relive the fun of Alumni Weekend here.

Join us on campus May 5 to May 7, 2023 for Alumni Weekend 2023. Class years ending in 3 or 8 will celebrate their milestone reunions, but all alumni are welcome.

Sunday, May 8, 2022–Events Canceled

With the recent change in our campus COVID-19 protocols, we have made the difficult decision to remove all Sunday campus events from the Alumni Weekend schedule. This decision was made for the health and safety of students as they prepare for exams, commencement, and other year-end events.

Reunion Giving

Reunions are a chance to reconnect, reminisce, and celebrate with classmates, as well as honor both your legacy and your ongoing commitment to George School with a gift. Reunion giving is a tradition that links Georgians of every generation.
