Event Details


FD18 RECAP:
Alumni from Foundation, Knapp Hall and Academy schools reunite on campus 50 years after closing

In October, we welcomed back our beloved Bereans from Foundation, Academy and Knapp Hall for their biennial reunion, this year marking the 50th anniversary of the closing of Foundation School. The Foundation Reunion Committee, in collaboration with Alumni Relations, voted in November to begin holding this reunion annually, starting in 2019. Save-the-date for Foundation Reunion 2019, scheduled Oct. 4-6! VIEW A GALLERY of images from Foundation 2018, take a quick survey and read more about the history of these three schools. 

 


This fall, we're welcoming back our beloved Bereans from Foundation, Academy and Knapp Hall for their biennial reunion. In 2006, Foundation alumni celebrated their first reunion on Berea's campus and in 2008, Academy and Knapp Hall alumni joined them. Since then, alumni from all three schools return to campus every two year to get together, reminisce and celebrate their time at Berea College. 

Academy was founded 1892 to educate grades 9-12 and eventually became Foundation School. Knapp Hall was created to provide training for teachers where they taught Berea's elementary school students. In 1968, Foundation was closed and merged with the town's independent school. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the closing of Foundation. Today, the Knapp Hall building continues to house the Education Studies program for Berea College students. Read more about the history of these schools.
