We are swiftly approaching a momentous milestone in the school's history as we prepare to mark 100 years since Buckley was founded in 1923. In celebration of this anniversary, we are planning a number of festivities for our community of parents, students, alumni, faculty, past trustees, and friends of the school.

We hope many of you will join us for events on Long Island, especially our Centennial Gala Weekend, which will take place May 19-21, 2023! Return to this page for updates on all our Reunion and Gala Weekend events.

For more information, contact Marjorie Jean-Paul, Chief Community Engagement Officer, at
mjeanpaul@buckleycountryday.com, or ext. 2771.

We look forward to seeing you at the Reunion and Gala Weekend in 2023!

Submit Your BCDS Artifacts

All members of the Buckley community are invited to submit artifacts to be considered for inclusion in the Centennial art installation. Submissions can be made by filling out this FORM, or by contacting Holly O’Brien (contact information below).

What do “artifacts” include? Artifacts can include – but are not limited to – photographs, documents, artwork, memorabilia, recipes, objects, or any other tangible thing that speaks to your Buckley experience. These could be personal items, something from the school, or even a memory-rich location on campus. When you look around, these items speak to you and say, “This is my Buckley.”

Looking for inspiration or maybe just a trip down memory lane? Check out The Buckley Archive online to see yearbooks, plaques, and photos! 

We very much hope you will join us in creating this once-in-a-lifetime project!
