Homecoming 2024 and Class Reunions

Homecoming 2024

Welcome back to Bethany! Bethany is opening the doors to a bright future, and we are glad you can be a part of it! 


We are excited to have you back on campus as we celebrate reunion years for classes ending in 4 and 9.  During this year’s Homecoming, alumni are invited to be a part of the opening of the new lower school addition with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Be sure to come and see a tour of the new space!


Homecoming weekend will be filled with activities for alumni and their families. This year's schedule includes an alumni chapel, plenty of sports action, and a Saturday ‘food truck’ lunch in the amphitheater with entertainment by the Dangling Participles Duo (Austin Kaufmann ’94). Bring your family for children's activities and wear your spirit gear as you support the Bruins’ volleyball and soccer teams. 


Our Heritage alumni will have a noon meal in the cafeteria catered by Das Dutchman Essenhaus. This meal is for reunion classes celebrating 51-plus years.
