Charter Day 2021
Charter Day, Bryn Athyn College’s homecoming weekend, is held every October during a weekend filled with events. It is a celebration of the signing of the Charter in 1877, which founded Bryn Athyn College and it's sister organization, The Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools.
Every year, traditional festivities include Bryn Athyn College alumni and friends reception events, Lions atheltic games, the family-friendly Kite Day, tours of various Bryn Athyn Historic District buildings, and a golf outing fundraiser for our Student Scholarship Fund.
The weekend begins with a visually-striking procession in which our students march from the Brickman Center to a worship service and address in Bryn Athyn Cathedral, led by the country flags of our International Student Organization.

Due to the high transmission rates of the COVID-19 in Montgomery County PA, we currently have the following masking policies in place to keep our students, staff, and guests safe:
- Masks are to be worn inside all campus and Historic District buildings at all times. The exception to this rule is when people are seated and actively eating a meal.

- If this policy is amended, or additional policies implemented, we will let you know.
