Westminster Academy has over 4,000 graduates impacting our communities, our nation, and our world in every sphere of society including business, healthcare, education, government, engineering, entertainment, athletics, media, military, first responders, and ministry.

We are proud of our alumni—their character, accomplishments, and impact for the Kingdom of God. We enjoy highlighting the achievements of WA alumni through our annual report, the PawPrint, the Athletic Hall of Honor Awards, the Distinguished Alumni Award,  and social media. To share news about alumni, or to nominate alumni for awards, please fill out the Nominate Alumni form on this page.

The Westminster Academy Alumni Association unites and involves alumni, parents, faculty, and staff and promotes Christ-centered fellowship, involvement, and financial support to the school that has played a significant role in their lives. We also give back to our future alumni each year through two college scholarships to the senior class.

Perhaps the most visible way the Alumni Association promotes fellowship and unity between the past and the present is through a variety of events, such as…

Class Reunions

If your class is planning a reunion or you would like to volunteer to help organize a reunion, please contact Alumni Relations and Events Specialist, Sandy Smith ’85 Hall. The Development Office can provide a reunion guide, access to our database, and promotion on our alumni social media to help ensure your gathering is a success.


Each fall, we gather for an alumni tailgate prior to the Homecoming Football game to enjoy good food and reuniting with classmates and present the Athletic Hall of Honor Awards.

Winter Court

Join us each January as a participant or fan for the Annual Lions Knockout Alumni vs. Faculty Basketball Game following the Winter Court Basketball game.

Senior & Alumni Luncheon

Join us in May as we welcome the graduating class into the Alumni Association. Alumni will share words of wisdom for college and life, as well as the impact WA had on their lives. In keeping with tradition, LaSpada’s subs will be served!


Be a part of our seniors’ special day. We will present the Distinguished Alumni Award to a deserving alumnus during the Commencement Ceremony.
