Charter Day 2017

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 October 20. Festivities will take place from October 19-23, 2017.

Every year, traditional festivities include reunion events, our boys varsity football game, our Charter Day Banquet, and a golf outing fund-raiser for our student aid fund. The weekend begins with a visually-striking procession in which our students march from Benade Hall to a worship service in Bryn Athyn Cathedral, carrying banners that represent over a century of our alumni classes.

Livestream Chapel

Every morning, the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools join together first thing for an inspirational message in the chapel. The ministers in our Religion Department, along with guest ministers, provide a short service based on teachings from the Word. We hope these services can provide food for reflection throughout the day, as well as fodder for class discussion.

You are welcome to join us for the current, live-streamed chapel, or to view past chapels, by clicking on the YouTube link below. They are typically about 10-12 minutes in length

Tickets On Sale!

We are excited to announce our fall play, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This year a record number of students auditioned for the show—35! We have elected to cast everyone who tried out and have ended up with two large ensembles: the Witch's army and those loyal to Aslan.

According to the script, there will be no blackouts for scene changes. ANC Dance Teacher and Choreographer, Sarah Gladish, has voluntarily taken a group of students who will be the wood nymphs; they will provide both the scenic changes and influence the mood of the show through choreographed movement to music during the scene changes.

This is a wonderful show that focuses on the power and resiliency of children when there are no parents to do life for them.

Performances will be held November 30 at 8pm, December 1 at 8pm, and December 2 at 3pm and 7pm.

The intense action features chases, duels and escapes, as the Witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life. Perfect for families and people of all ages, the performance time will run approximately 70 minutes.

New Food Service at ANC

After an extensive search process, The ANC Secondary Schools and Bryn Athyn College have changed food service vendors effective July 1, 2017 to SAGE Dining Services. The decision was made after reviewing proposals from a variety of food service providers. SAGE Dining Services was selected based on the terms they offered in quality of service, support of community, nutrition, education, sustainability, and delicious food using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients.

SAGE roasts all of their own deli meats. Food items on the menu will be freshly prepared and sourced from local vendors. SAGE buys cage-free, Certified Humane® eggs and antibiotic- and hormone-free milk. They only use trans-fat-free oils and MSG-free seasonings; there are no artificial flavors or preservatives on the menu. SAGE also has a unique program to address the needs of students who have food allergies or restrictions. For more details about what SAGE has to offer, please visit www.sagedining.com. Look for the new ANC Secondary School menu to be posted in August.
