Welcome, Upper Arlington Alumni!

Reconnect, share your latest news and special memories, and learn more about Alumni activities and events. Welcome home Golden Bears!

We invite you to open doors and stay connected to Upper Arlington High School classmates, the Upper Arlington City Schools and the Upper Arlington Community - no matter where you are in the world. Upper Arlington High School has Alumni living in all 50 states and several countries. The Upper Arlington Alumni Association (UAAA) was founded in 1985 by the Upper Arlington Education Foundation (UA+Ed). All graduates are members of the Upper Arlington Alumni Association.

The purpose of the Upper Arlington Alumni Association (UAAA):

  • Be a unifying force that develops and facilitates organized communication between the Upper Arlington City School District, its Alumni, former faculty and the community.

  • Promote the tradition, pride and reputation of excellence of the School District, its students, faculty and alumni through communication mechanisms; social, education and cultural opportunities; and other programs.

  • Develop a spirit of giving that facilitates the fundraising efforts of the UA Education Foundation, the School District and any other fundraising that benefits the School District, its students or faculty.

The Mrs. McKinney Project!

Mrs. Mary McKinney and her former student Rodger Curnow - reconnected at the Teton National Park last summer.

Did you graduate from UA High School in 1964 or 1965?

Did you have

Mrs. McKinney in

7th grade?

Click below to see news coverage about this project.

She is now 84 years old and lives in Athens, Georgia.

Students in her class in 1959/60 were assigned a project to write a letter to themselves, seal it in an envelope and address it to their home address. Mrs. McKinney promised to mail it to her students after 10 years had passed. She was unable to achieve delivery to 21 students. So all these years she has kept the letters.

The Upper Arlington Alumni Association is hoping to help some of Mrs. McKinney's students get the letter they wrote 60 years ago.

Please check the following list.  If you're on it - we have a letter for you (from you)! 


You can email me at Alice@UAEducationFoundation.com or call 614-487-5007 (ext. 1120) to arrange delivery.
