Alumni represent the past and future of independent schools. Those who have gone before must help shape the future of schools such as Amelia Academy. Alumni and friends ensure that the Academy will continue to operate apart from the burden of the bureaucracy-driven, test-focused environment that characterizes public education today.
Across the nation and around the world, independent schools are offering unique and wonderful opportunities for students. Amelia Academy is proud to stand among these schools. However, the fact remains that alumni involvement represents a hallmark of private school education.
The Academy recently launched a Distinguished Alumni Award. This award is given annually to an alumnus over forty years of age who has demonstrated the highest standard of achievement, leadership, and service, and has distinguished himself or herself at Amelia Academy and his or her community at large.
