Annual Events

In addition to the program events that are run by the Calhoun Annual Fund, Benefit and Alumni Relations, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations hosts a number of other school-wide events for our families and extended community members. These include the following:

Calhoun Cultural Excursions

In an effort to connect Calhoun to the world around us, we occasionally organizes trips to special exhibits and experiences taking place in New York City, in partnership with adults in our extended community. These cultural excursions give us an opportunity to bring Calhoun Everywhere as we discover families, grandparents and alumni making an impact on the cultural life of our city and beyond. For more information, contact L.J. Mitchell.

New Parent Gathering

The Board of Trustees invites parents who are new to Calhoun to a special welcome reception in mid-September. The 2020 New Parent Gathering was held on September 9.

State of the School

Hear directly from the Head of School about Calhoun including achievements from the year, the financial status of the school, how we compare to our peer schools on key dynamics, and the opportunities and challenges Calhoun faces, along with the plans to address them. Current parents, grandparents, alumni and faculty/staff are welcome to attend. The 2021 State of the School was held on May 13 and 14.
