A Brave Start


SPRING 2021
START DATE | JANUARY 19, 2021


The Alcorn community is coming home this spring! The way we interact will look different, but we are still one family – one Brave family working together every day to adopt a new normal on the campus we love.

Alcorn leadership has considered – and will continue to evaluate and adjust - every safe pathway for our community to engage in beloved traditions. In true Alcorn fashion, our team has remained focused on ambitious goals and continued improvement while staying endlessly positive. With safety and success at the forefront of the conversation, we are excited and hopeful for what’s to come!

Students, faculty, and staff should re-enter campus with open minds, consideration for one another, and that same Brave spirit that has always made Alcorn truly special.

We will see you soon for A BRAVE START into the 2020-2021 school year!
