Our Alumni | Charter Day
Charter Day is our homecoming weekend, held in October each year to celebrate the signing of the Charter for the Academy of the New Church in 1877.
Charter Day 2017 will be on Friday, October 20. Festivities will take place from October 19-23, 2016.
Every year, traditional festivities include ANC Secondary Schools reunion events, ANC Recharging Station, Chili Cook-Off fundraiser, ANC Varsity Football game, Charter Day Banquet, and a golf outing fundraiser for our Student Scholarship Fund. The weekend begins with a visually-striking procession in which our students march from the Benade Hall to a worship service and address in Bryn Athyn Cathedral, led by the American flag and the remarkable class banners.
