Alumni Reunion

Each summer, FJC and FA alumni are invited to return to campus for reunions. The 50-year class especially looks forward to this event!  The reunion aspect has expanded to include any class celebrating an anniversary divisible by the number five. For example, 5-year, 10-year, etc. all the way to 70-year!  Presently, this celebration is held the last Saturday in June in conjunction with “Ribs at the Ranch” – a fundraiser for debt reduction on Sterling Hall/Maintenance Building.

We continue to invite honored classes to consider a special gift for Freeman Academy at that time which can be designated to a specific project on campus.  Some of the projects chosen over the recent years are financial aid/scholarships for current students, technology, equipment for grounds upkeep and building repair/renovation.

Invitations are sent to honored class members each year, but all alumni are always welcome to attend the alumni reunion.

For specific details on upcoming events or assistance in planning your class reunion, please contact the Development Office at Freeman Academy, 605-925-4237, ext 235 or

Pioneer Circle – A Circle of Support for Christian Education at Freeman Academy
This newly organized group of donors provides a solid financial foundation for Freeman Academy by individuals’ pledging and contributing $1000, or more, per year over and above gifts through the church or business drive, tuition assistance or Sterling Hall debt reduction.  These sustaining gifts help to ensure a consistent flow of income for the general budget.

More than a collection of gifts, the Pioneer Circle is the catalyst for turning individual generosity into collective energy. It represents the interaction of alumni and friends working together to provide opportunities for students in Freeman and the surrounding rural community. If you would like to learn more about becoming part of Pioneer Circle, contact Vernetta Waltner at 605-925-4237, ext. 235 or
