Wildcat Weekend - Homecoming & Reunion

In October of each year, we welcome alumni from all years to Wildcat Weekend, a spirited weekend filled with athletic events, an alumni panel, a reception with the headmaster and faculty, reunion year dinners, and more.

Wildcat Weekend and Reunion 2018: Friday, October 12 & Saturday, October 13.

Alumni Hall of Fame Dinner

The Alumni Hall of Fame was created by the Alumni Executive Board to recognize alumni for their post-RCDS accomplishments. The Alumni Hall of Fame dinner is held every other year (even-numbered years) during Wildcat Weekend. The 2018 Alumni Hall of Fame Dinner will be held on Friday, October 12.



Thanksgiving Games

A twenty-five-year tradition at RCDS, this annual event attracts alumni and their families who come together to visit with their coaches and re-live their glory days as RCDS athletes. RCDS alumni return year after year to play hockey and basketball and to visit with Coach Frank Effinger, Coach Gil Castagna, Coach John Sabia, Athletic Director Wendy Haft, and others. The games and reception take place on the Friday evening following Thanksgiving. 2018 Thanksgiving games will be held on Friday, November 23.

Networking Panel and Reception

A panel of accomplished alumni share their career experiences, followed by a reception and a chance to meet alumni leaders in diverse industries. This event is open to the senior class and all alumni. Alumni who are building their network, exploring careers, or considering a career transition are encouraged to attend.

Regional Alumni Receptions

RCDS arranges several events and receptions throughout the North East and across the country. Check "Upcoming Events" in the e-Newsletters or the registrations available above to see if there is an upcoming reception close by.

Blue & Gold Dinner

Every year, the Senior Class gathers shortly before graduation for the Blue & Gold Dinner, sponsored by the Alumni & Development Office. During that dinner, we honor the graduating class as the newest members of our alumni community. The Alumni Executive Board joins the seniors as we celebrate their accomplishments and welcome them to the Alumni Association.

Headmaster's Circle Reception

Each fall, the Headmaster and the Board of Trustees invites Annual Giving donors at the $2,500 level and above to a reception honoring their generosity and celebrating the success of the previous year's campaign.

Past Events

RCDS On the Road: Boston Alumni Event

It may have been opening day at Fenway, but for RCDS alumni it was an evening of re-connecting and making new connections at our RCDS on the Road alumni and friends cocktail reception at the top of the Bank of America building. Almost thirty alumni, from classes spanning from 1968-2017, and current and former faculty enjoyed panoramic views of the city as they renewed RCDS connections and learned about exciting school news and plans for the future.
