What a great turnout this year! Alumni from all over the United States and world traveled back to our little town and to Hargrave Military Academy.
Homecoming at Hargrave means a lot more than Homecoming at most schools. It is a time when our alumni come home to reconnect with the family that they worked with, played with and grew up with. Former faculty and staff come back for Homecoming too.
As an Alum of HMA, it is amazing to see the brother / sisterhood and how strong those bonds are even to this day. The weekend was full of events from our Annual Alumni Golf Tournament at Danville Golf Club, Alumni Social at Reid Street Gallery, Homecoming Parade, breakfast and lunch with the cadets and the Homecoming Finale at Berry Hill Resort.
See everyone next year!

"Hey, Coach, when will my doubles match start?"
That's a common (and good question). In VIC tennis, that usually means about an hour later after the singles matches are at least partially completed. Generally, a singles point is over in around 8 seconds. Minimum of 4 points per game. Minimum of... more
Applying to college is "simply" another application of the pillar model used at Hargrave.
