Celebrating Salem's 250th Anniversary
Salem Academy and College announces the upcoming Celebration of Salem’s 250th Anniversary to be held during the academic year of 2021-22. We will be commemorating and celebrating both Salem’s remarkable history AND our inspiring future as a trailblazer in education for girls and women.
The year-long recognition will include a special focus on all of Salem’s traditional events, beginning with Orientation 2021 and concluding with Graduation 2022. We will also celebrate with a number of special events, listed below, kicking off with a Concert and Dinner Dance on September 25, 2021, and wrapping up with a Finale Weekend that includes Founder’s Day on April 22, 2022, and Reunion Weekend April 22-24, 2022.

As we prepare for this historic year, we wish to identify meaningful ways to engage alumnae, students, faculty, staff, and friends across generations, experiences, and identities. Please provide us with your suggestions for what would make this celebration meaningful.
We will invite the participation of people from across the many groups that comprise Salem - both internal and external, alumnae and community partners, students, faculty and staff - to shine a bright light on the importance of Salem’s mission, values, and contributions - past, present, and future. If you have an interest in being involved in creating and implementing the 250th Celebration, please complete this volunteer form.
