Alumni / Reunion Weekend

Each June we celebrate  Reunion Weekend – a festive occasion that reunites our alumni on the campus of Verde Valley School. They come to reconnect, share stories of their past memories and those yet to be created, and of course, roll up their sleeves and pitch in with work jobs – just like they did as students!  The Reunion Weekend program allows plenty of time to reminisce, dance in Brady Hall, relax over a meal and glass of wine in the shady quad, climb Cowpie, swim in Oak Creek, and hear plans for the future from the Head of School and Board of Trustees.

You are welcome to stay on campus and request the dorm you’d like to stay in. This allows you to fully re-immerse yourself in VVS. Housing is available in single, double or triple rooms on campus, with shared bathrooms. Contact your friends if you’re hoping to room together or near each other, and just let us know your roommate preference.  If you would prefer to stay off campus, visit these sites for information on local accommodations:

Meals
Director of Dining Services Holly Vaughan and her staff give Reunion Weekend their all, and offer delicious and nutritious food all weekend. Dinners are complemented by a cash bar with beer and wine. Your registration costs cover meals and non-alcoholic drinks for the weekend.

Reunion Weekend Planning 
Would you like to help plan your reunion? Do you have ideas for class activities? Are you willing to send a few emails and contact some friends? If so, please contact us. Word of mouth and involvement from friends is the most effective way to ensure a great turnout for reunion.
