Meet Our Office

Once students become alumni members, the Advancement Office at WRA is here to keep our Pioneer family strong. Whether it be on-campus events, events in a city near you or even a good, old-fashioned catching-up-over-the-phone, we work to keep you connected to each other and to us.

We are committed to continuing a legacy of generosity initiated by alumnus James Ellsworth, whose extraordinary gifts allowed the school to not only re-open its doors in 1916, but to thrive. Mr. Ellsworth's legacy is sustained today by our many alumni, parents and friends, whose support is apparent all across campus.

If you are a parent, or prospective parent, the information contained here will demonstrate how your child's experience at WRA will be supported by the gifts of past parents and alumni, people who care deeply for the school and are committed to preserving its distinctive strengths. Please contact any member of our team if you would like more information on supporting Western Reserve Academy.

You can always contact the Advancement Office directly at 330-650-9701.
