Class of 1970 Pavilion

In celebration of its 50th reunion last year, The Albany Academy Class of 1970 made a pledge to raise $250,000
to fund the design and construction of a timber-framed pavilion for special events held on the campus. Two classmates stepped forward to contribute a total of up to $125,000, agreeing to match contributions dollar for dollar up to $125,000.
To be known as The Class of 1970 Pavilion, the project will honor the class legacy at the school and provide
outdoor classroom space for current students of The Albany Academies, a venue for annual events
such as Reunion and Commencement, and a place for summer campers to engage in camp activities outdoors.
 
The structure will be located on the north side of the main Albany Academy building near the track/football field.
When completed, it will accommodate 150 people seated around tables.

Construction on the structure will begin in the fall and the pavilion is expected to be completed by November. Thank you to the many Class of 1970 members who have contributed and supported this project.

"Several members of the Class of 1970 told us they wanted to memorialize their time here in a tangible way. The Class of 1970 Pavilion is a wonderful example of the generosity of our graduates and the legacy they wish to provide for current and future students. I am certain that for many years to come students will enjoy the pavilion and the opportunities it presents for outdoor events. Thank you to the class members for this outstanding gift!"

--Chris Lauricella, Head of School
