The annual Upton Street Reunion took place on Tuesday, October 26 with over 30 alumnae attending. The alumnae all graduated from the Academy’s campus on Upton Street, which closed after the Kensington campus opened in 1956. The reunion attendees included the classes of 1947 through 1959.
The event included a social hour followed by Mass in the Holy Cross Theatre. The guests enjoyed a short video about the Academy’s #EmpoweredGirls capital campaign. The day concluded with a luncheon for the guests, where reminiscing about high school days and catching up on current life events complemented the menu.
The Academy of the Holy Cross was located on Upton Street in Washington, DC from 1910 to 1959 with the Class of 1959 as the last class to graduate from the campus. The Class of 1960 opened the Kensington campus in 1956 as freshmen.
