It’s time to make plans to return to Saint John’s Prep for our All School Reunion 2020. We’re excited to welcome back our alumni/ae and families for this weekend of friendship and fun. Plan to join us June 12-14 in Collegeville. There are several events listed below and others will be added as we get closer to the event.
These plans are still in the works, let us know if there’s something specific you’d like to do!

Friday, June 12
Individual Class Events (let us know your plans and we’ll share them!)

  • 5:30 pm Twin Towers Dinner and Social in SJU Quad 170
    *This will include the induction ceremony for the Class of 1970. Twin Towers members and their guests are welcome to attend this event. After dinner, the room is reserved for the Class of 1970 for an evening of remembrances and celebrations.
    The Twin Towers Club is for all alumni who graduated 50 years ago or longer. If you graduated before 1970 and have not been a part of the ceremony and received your hat, please contact us! 
  • Individual Class Events: Friday night is an ideal night to get together with your classmates. Whether you meet on campus, in St. Cloud or in the Twin Cities, let us know of your plans! We’re happy to help you share the details with your classmates.
