More than 35 years ago, Peggy Webb Patterson, 1947, Alumnae Assistant, was looking for a way to encourage alumnae to return to the RPCS campus. Under her leadership, RPCS began to offer programs for alumnae. The goal was, and continues to be, to foster a lifelong love of learning. Today, External Programs at Roland Park Country School has grown and expanded to include and welcome the entire RPCS and greater Baltimore communities. Each semester over 100 Kaleidoscope programs with more than 1,000 participants are held. Join us and see for yourself – An Education Above at Roland Park Country School.
