• Members of The 1801 Society commit to support The Academy Fund at a specific gift level each year.

    Henry Bowen Circle: $5,000.00+ 
    After making his fortune in New York City, Henry Bowen returned to Woodstock and revitalized The Academy. His investment in the physical infrastructure and the faculty in the mid-1800s helped revive the school, and develop The Academy’s framework for success.
    Lyman Founders: $1,801.00+
    Reverand Eliphalet Lyman was the driving force behind the establishment of The Academy in 1801. Riding on horseback through the community and soliciting support of finances and materials, he was able to gain the support needed to establish the school.
    McClellan Associates: $900.50+
    Largely motivated by the growing sense of local identity and pride, Samuel
    McClellan, along with his sons John and James were instrumental in the
    founding of The Academy. Their desire was to see local students well equipped for entrance to the best colleges.
    Holmes Partners: $180.10+
    General David Holmes capped the day of original construction as he was lifted to place The Academy steeple, adding the finishing touch.
    In return for their gifts, members of The 1801 Society will receive regular
    updates about life at The Academy. Those contributing at the Lyman Founders and Henry Bowen Circle levels will also be invited to special events to further connect with Head of School Sandford and other 1801 Society members.
