Bridgton Academy
Homecoming Weekend 2017

"Tradition and Change"
September 29th - October 1st

You are cordially invited to attend Bridgton Academy's 2017 Homecoming Weekend!  This exciting fall weekend is for all Wolverine alumni, parents, faculty, and friends, with something on the schedule for everyone!  We are excited to have you join us as we celebrate "Tradition and Change" at Bridgton Academy.

The full schedule of events begins on Friday morning and continues through Sunday afternoon. And, with most of our athletic teams hosting at least one competition, it's the perfect opportunity to cheer for your favorite Wolverine sport!

For our alumni, graduating classes ending in 2's and 7's will be our special milestone reunion-year guests at this year's Homecoming. Alumni from all years, however, are both encouraged and invited to attend.  Highlights for our alumni include events throughout the weekend. Friday features a 9-Hole Wolverine Golf Scramble and a Long Lake cruise aboard the Songo River Queen.  On Saturday, we'll host the Alumni Celebration Brunch in the morning and an Alumni Gathering later that evening. Also on Saturday, we will dedicate our new multi-sport scoreboard, generously offered by the BA Class of 1967 in honor of their milestone 50th reunion. Our first-ever Alumni Lacrosse Game takes place Sunday morning.

Homecoming 2017 also offers our Class of 2018 parents a glimpse into their son's daily routine at Bridgton.  There will be several opportunities to meet with teachers and advisors throughout the weekend.  All families are invited to join us for a meal (or two!) in Goldsmith Dining Hall, as well as tailgate cookouts under the Homecoming tent both Saturday and Sunday.   For any parents who enjoy golfing, you are also invited to join us on Friday for a 9-Hole Wolverine Golf Scramble at nearby Bridgton Highlands Country Club.

Be sure to mark your calendars for September 29th - October 1st for Homecoming 2017. You won't want to miss this memorable weekend at Bridgton Academy!  Please click on the link below to register for any events throughout the weekend.  In order to help us with meal planning throughout the weekend, your RSVP is strongly recommended by Wednesday, September 27th.
