Columbus Academy, Class of 1995

Quite possibly the finest class to grace that campus.

As our class agent, I thought this would be a more convenient and attractive way to stay connected to classmates and the school. Feel free to provide suggestions and content. Thanks.

All Day 4 CA Calling all Vikings! Show your spirit and support!

[04/10/18]   Today is the day for ALL of us to come together to celebrate our Academy experience. Thanks to the generosity of eight alumni and school families, the first $107,000 will be matched.

Show your Viking spirit and you can double your impact!
We are proud of our school, our students, our graduates and our community.

Columbus Academy | The Columbus Foundation

Today’s the day, folks. It’s The Big Give, The Columbus Foundation's 26-hour online giving event! This special opportunity only lasts until noon ET on Wednesday, October 11; simply click the link below to give.

Your amplified gift provides extra support for faculty development and curricular innovation that ensures each student finds their own unique path from wonder to wisdom.

Wherever you are on your quest for your best, everyone's great support makes a BIG difference for our faculty and students. Thank you!

Give here: Independent, coeducational, college preparatory school that enriches its academic tradition of excellence by valuing a broad diversity of students as it seeks to develop the complete person: mind, body, and character.

Hello out there. I have been a little derelict on this page for a while. I took the summer off from everything and ended it with a move across the country to San Diego. As a result, I have reunited with some of our classmates - Joshua Ruberg, Laura Zagar, and Ruth Vesler. In fact, Ruth is now my kids' swim coach. Small world.

Anyway, a couple of small housekeeping items:

1. I am not currently doing anything interesting or amazing, but I suspect a bunch of you are doing those things. If you would like anything of those endeavors to appear in the monthly CA News links, post them here or send them along to me and we can get them included. It would be cool to see our class represented.

2. The Big Give is back and it is coming up soon! It is a 26-hour event from October 10th at 10:00am ET through October 11th at 12:00 ET. Below is a (janky) link with all of the relevant information:

[09/19/15]   Just a reminder that we are meeting at Seventh Son Brewery tonight. I know many of you are headed I the Ohio State game, so I will plan on being there between 7:30 and 8:00pm. The brewery is located in the Short North and 4th Avenue and 4th Street. I previously asked Uber for a group code but they screwed it up and gave me Uber20 (twice), which is the first time user code. Feel free to try it but I am not hopeful (unless you are new to Uber). Looking forward to seeing everyone. Let me know if you have any questions.

Reunion Weekend 2015

Don't forget I register for reunion weekend. Located in Gahanna, Ohio, Columbus Academy is a private coed school for grades Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade.

The Columbus Foundation — Home of The Big Give! May 12, 2015

Don't forget - today is the Big Give! If you support CA today the Columbus Foundation will cover all the credit card fees associated with your gift, which ensures that Academy receives all of your donation.

The instructions on how to give via the Big Give are in a previous post on this page. Or, just head over to and click "Give Now." You are all smart and can do this. The Big Give is back, bigger and better than ever! Show your community spirit and support your favorite nonprofits during this 24-hour online giving rally.

It's that time of year! We're in the final months of the school's Annual Fund year, ending June 30. As you know, CA alumni across the country and around the world play a vital role in supporting the school each year. Annual Fund gifts are put to work in the classroom, helping us provide unique and impactful learning experiences for our students as well as provide financial aid for those who otherwise would be unable to afford this exceptional education for their child.

This year, Columbus Academy is participating in the Big Give 24-hour online giving event, beginning Tuesday, May 12 at 10:00am ET.

The Big Give, sponsored by The Columbus Foundation, is a giving event meant to ignite passion and support for central Ohio nonprofits. Gifts made during the 24-hour period will be eligible for bonus funds from a $1.3 million bonus pool (on a pro rata basis, not a dollar-for-dollar match).

During the last event, in 2013, the CA community showed their Viking spirit in a BIG way for the benefit of our students. True to our motto, "In Quest of the Best", CA was the fourth largest recipient of funds from The Big Give, earning $35,000 in bonus funds!
