Stratford Athletic Hall of Fame

Formally established in 2010, the Stratford Athletic Hall of Fame strives to maintain the rich heritage and tradition of the successful athletic programs of Stratford Academy. It serves as a means of recognizing, preserving and honoring the athletes, coaches, teams and individuals who have made significant contributions to the school’s athletic programs. The Hall of Fame honors the contributions and accomplishments of these individuals and teams who are worthy of recognition and serve as examples for others to emulate.

The inductees are honored at an all-school assembly on the Friday of Alumni Weekend each year. They are also recognized during halftime of the Homecoming football game that evening. To nominate an individual or team for the Hall of Fame, please visit www.stratford.org/halloffame. Nominations are due by January 15 of each induction year.

Each year Stratford recognizes two alumni at commencement. If you know an alumni deserving of recognition, please consider nominating them for our Distinguished Alumni Award or the Alumni Service Award
