Alumni Homecoming 2016 – 75th Anniversary Celebration

We look forward to seeing a large number of alumni, family, and friends in Castine for Homecoming 2016 as we continue the celebration of the Academy’s 75th year. This year, Homecoming Weekend will include live entertainment, tailgating, sports competitions, class reunions and a big birthday party in recognition of the very first class of Mariners who arrived in October of 1941.

We hope you’ll join us September 23-25, 2016!
