Students, teachers and faculty of Isle of Wight Academy are going into their school golden.

Mary-Margaret Wells, director of development, said that IWA is celebrating its 50th anniversary; the academy began its first school year in 1967.

Buses arrived early on Wednesday morning loaded with their Chargers while parents drove in with their own. Inside the office and throughout the campus, everyone was moving with purpose.

Headmaster Benjamin Vaughan, who’s been here for 47 of those years, said that the first major activity to mark the anniversary will be Homecoming on Friday, Sept. 30. Other events will be announced through the school year.
