Kaleidoscope Adult Learning

Welcome Friends,

Over forty years ago, Alumnae Secretary Peggy Webb Patterson, 1947, was charged by Headmistress Anne Healy to create outreach programs for alumnae, their friends, and the Baltimore community. The RPCS Evening School was established during the 1972-1973 academic year and with Peggy’s guidance, RPCS began to develop and offer courses. One of the goals was to support the School’s mission to foster a lifelong love of learning. Today, Kaleidoscope at RPCS has grown considerably. Courses, lectures, book talks, theater, and day trips are offered in the fall and spring semesters.  Topics include History and Culture, Book Talks, Creative Pursuits, Film, Personal Development, Culinary Arts, and much more. There truly is something for everyone! Classes are held predominately on the Roland Park Country School campus and are open to the community. Please take a moment to review our current catalog to learn about the programs available. We look forward to welcoming you to campus this year.
Kindest Regards,

Kristin Jarrell
Director of External Programs

  • Cancellations

    RPCS reserves the right to cancel or adjust any program that does not meet the minimum designated enrollment. Kaleidoscope programs will be postponed or cancelled whenever RPCS closes early or closes for the day for inclement weather. Programs will be held when school opens late. When feasible, an alternate date will be scheduled for the cancelled class. Please be sure to call the School at 410-323-5500, ext. 3045 for information regarding all program changes. All sales are final on Diversions trips. Note: RPCS does not follow the same closing policies as the Baltimore City Schools.
  • Raptor Security System at RPCS

    Beginning in 2015, RPCS instituted a new policy as an enhancement of our security procedures for visitors. Upon entering the Harris Center, guests are required to give their license or government issued photo ID to the receptionist who will scan it with our Raptor system. A printed visitor badge will be automatically issued for the day. Thank you for your support and use of this system.
