60th Anniversary Celebration & Reception

On April 28th, alumni, faculty, parents and friends gathered at Grace Cathedral for an anniversary service celebrating the School's 60th milestone. Alumni choristers joined current choristers in the Choir House to practice the school hymn which they performed together during the program which began with a procession through the Ghiberti Doors of over 170 alumni from the classes of 1960 to 2017.

Current Head of School, Burns Jones, concluded the celebration by announcing this exciting initiative. Conceived by alumni Bill Bennington ’79 and Greg Lee ’78, Cathedral’s first teaching chair honors our founding Headmaster whose unwavering commitment to Episcopal education and Cathedral School has persisted for six decades.

All alumni and families are encouraged to help us reach the $1M target which will provide additional salary and professional development to Cathedral's fine teachers.
