This year we’re going virtual!

Homecoming & Family Weekend

We’re excited to celebrate Homecoming and Family Week with you, our annual and – this year – virtual homecoming and family week experience.

The year 2020 is a year quite unlike any other, but one thing won’t change: the opportunity to connect with your classmates, get a look inside your child’s journey at Taylor, or hear updates from faculty and staff.

Don’t miss out on all the fun to come. Between Taylor Talks, alumni class highlights, throwback photos, and more, there are new memories that await!

We can't wait to show you what's coming! Be sure to check back soon for a full schedule of events.
