in 1987 at the request of the Board of Trustees
of the Upper Arlington Education Foundation, the
Upper Arlington Alumni Association is a
strong organization whose purpose is to keep U.A.
Alumni, faculty and friends connected both to
each other and to the school district. There are
few public high schools in the country who are
fortunate enough to have such an active and interested
membership dues enable
us to maintain this website, our database and
mailings, plus give money for special projects
and equipment in the U.A. Schools. We do this
along with our parent group, the Upper
Arlington Education Foundation. The Foundation
and Association have given more than $2.4 million
back to the schools. The assets to date are just
under $1 million. Your
gifts to the Foundation and Association are
truly appreciated and well used!
your convenience, you can easily and securely
pay your membership dues online through Paypal.
