It was nice to have you home!
It was wonderful to welcome home our Alumni for reunion in December. Students eagerly anticipated your arrival on campus. In addition to a warm welcome at assembly, the alumni enjoyed a Theory of Knowledge class with Mr. Childs, a nail-biting round of Camosy Jeopardy, Mat Ball against our High School students, and, of course, time to visit through the day and especially at lunch with the faculty. Thank you for taking the time to visit. We love to have you anytime.
Mark your calendars for these coming events!
We’re taking alumni reservations for the Jazz Showcase on January 30th at 6:30 p.m. The show, “Jazz: On Stage and Screen,” features a live professional studio band along with the MCDS Bands and the Lower School Jazz Jammers. Food will not be served at this event. There will be a table waiting for the alumni!

Looking Back with Fond Memories and Moving Forward Prepared
With the class of 2014, MCDS graduated its eighth class, and our students report a smooth and successful transition moving from high school into the college or university setting.
Note from a Graduate
“I came to MCDS in eighth grade yearning for a new and more challenging educational experience. In my first year at MCDS I worked very hard, simultaneously making up for deficits as well as attempting to master the MCDS curriculum. Throughout the years, the teachers and curriculum continued to give me an education experience which was both enjoyable and challenging; this allowed me to reach my true potential. MCDS gave me a work ethic. The education provided not only the tools for cognition but metacognition. Outside of class, I made friends with people different from myself, which helped me to overcome the societal boundaries which so often are divisive elsewhere.
Hans Eric, Class of 2010
The college advising program at MCDS is designed to assist students and families in identifying colleges and universities that will best match a student’s strengths, interests, and aspirations beyond high school. Our students have been accepted to top colleges and universities.
