Thank you for coming home, Cheshire Academy.

Our Reunion Weekend was a record-breaking success, drawing over 200 alumni and friends for a weekend filled with great events.

Alumni gathered on Friday at the Farms Country Club for a night of cocktails and reconnecting. A few miles away on the Cheshire Academy campus, former players dusted off their lacrosse sticks for the annual Alumni Lacrosse game in honor of Kevin Tyska ’82 and Michael Sage ’98.

The Class of 1968 celebrated its 50th Reunion on Saturday with lunch at the O’Connor House hosted by Head of School Julie Anderson. Teachers Ray Cirmo and Eric Sacco provided a back-to-the-classroom experience for alumni, art teacher Karleen Kubat hosted an art station and Senior Master Bob Gardiner guided trolley tours of the old Cheshire Academy campus.

A ceremony followed honoring this year’s Kevin Slaughter Athletic Hall of Fame inductees, along with the inaugural Arts and Letters Hall of Fame induction. A great weekend of events culminated with cocktails, a sushi bar and dinner stations at the Gideon Welles Dining Commons. Check out a highlight video, links to news articles and photo galleries below.
