SENIOR LOCK-IN: Saturday, February 26 at 7:30pm to Sunday, February 27 at 7:30am
That’s right! It’s happening! For one special evening, the Upper School Faculty throws a party on campus for just the senior class. It’s an evening of games, food, silliness, and a special event organized just for them.
Attendance is optional but highly encouraged.

WINTER GATHERING EVENT; Monday, March 7th at 6 pm to 8:30 pm
Fireside in the Dining Hall
We invite you to a Winter Gathering of Columbus Academy parents and guardians.
Please join us for a playful evening of food, games, and the opportunity to create connections within our wonderful community. We have missed seeing everyone and the long Ohio winter encouraged us to plan an in-person event to have some fun, share some food and enjoy one another’s company. Childcare provided for students under Grade 7.
VERY Casual Attire Masks and VIKING SPIRIT required
Please RSVP by February 28 https://conta.cc/3H67yKW
