Taft Alumni Weekend 2021 is going virtual! You can expect an announcement at the end of January with details about the May events, including a series of live virtual programs, on-demand videos, engaging conversations with faculty and alumni, fun reunion gatherings, and a few surprises along the way. Nothing can replace being together back at Taft physically, but we promise this will come in a close second. Our Head of School, Willy MacMullen ’78, shares a message with you here.
In drafting the school motto, Mr. Taft sought not only to articulate a guiding principle for school life, but for life beyond Taft's bounds. One member of the alumni community is recognized each year with the school's highest alumni honor, The Horace Dutton Taft Alumni Medal, celebrating their dedication to a life of service.
In 1912, Horace Dutton Taft incorporated the Taft School, giving one-sixth ownership to school master Harley Fish Roberts. Fifteen years later Taft and Roberts turned the school over to a board of trustees, making it a non-profit institution. Today, the school's affairs are still guided and governed by a board of trustees.
Taft’s alumni volunteer program is designed to forge connections among and between the classes, the school, and across the alumni community. Whether you want to help with fundraising efforts, serve as a mentor, organize an event, and beyond, there are many ways to donate your time.
