Charter Day Weekend COVID-19 Masking Policy on campus and in our Historic District 

Due to the high transmission rates of the COVID-19 in Montgomery County PA, we currently have the following masking policies in place to keep our students, staff, and guests safe: 

  • Masks are to be worn inside all buildings at all times. The exception to this rule is when people are seated and actively eating a meal. 
  • Masks are not required outdoors, but we ask that you maintain a safe distance apart. 

If this policy is amended, or additional policies implemented, we will let you know. We are looking forward to seeing you in town for your reunions!

About Charter Day:

Charter Day is our homecoming weekend, held each year in October to celebrate the signing of the Charter for the Academy of the New Church in 1877. Every year, traditional festivities include ANC Secondary Schools reunion events, 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.
