Annual Events

Benefit
Held each year, the Benefit brings together parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty/staff and friends to celebrate the school and to raise vital funds which help to ensure that Calhoun remains a leader in progressive education. The 2018 Benefit was held at the Ziegfeld Ballroom and was a wonderful celebration of our community that raised vital fund for our school. Please save the date for the 2019 Calhoun Benefit which will be on Friday, March 1, 2019. More details to come in the fall.
