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 2016 will be on October 14. Festivities will take place from October 13-17, 2016.
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.
