The future is rooted in all of us! Rosati-Kain High School has a base of over 6,000 active alumnae. These women are firmly linked with the over 13,000 alumnae who have walked through the doors of R-K since 1911.
We hope that this website, and the new alumnae pages in particular, will help you maintain and strengthen your connection to Rosati-Kain. You will find information on upcoming events, details about Alumnae Mass & Brunch, class reunions, news, and photos of what is happening at school.
Our alumnae are a vital component of the success of R-K! There are many ways you can be involved, whether it is attending the auction, sending us information about your achievements, or supporting financially the Fund for R-K. We encourage you to contact the Advancement Office at any time to suggest new things or to ask questions! We look forward to hearing from you!
Please take a moment to update your contact information so we can keep you informed on everything R-K!

Rosati-Kain class rings are forged in tradition and memory, bonding alumnae to R-K and their graduating class.
Rings donated to the R-K Ring Konnection, however, are even richer in history. Decades-old rings that may be forgotten about in a jewelry box or left after an R-K alumna passes away are re-connected to current R-K students.
Beginning in 2016, alumnae who would like to donate their class rings or those rings of a loved one, can do so by filling out the form attached below and contacting Jen Guidice at email@example.com about delivering the ring.
The alumna ring is then paired up with a current Junior who is unable to purchase a ring on her own.

In 2013, the Rosati-Kain graduating class participated in the first Alumnae Senior Konnection program, or ASK. As part of this new tradition, each senior asked an alumna to be her graduation sponsor. R-K alumnae – grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, and friends – were represented at graduation and able to offer a special blessing to welcome Rosati-Kain’s newest alumnae into the sisterhood. As part of the ASK mentor program for 2014, ASK mentors and their seniors enjoyed social events throughout the year before graduation.

The Advancement Department, in coordination with the Alumnae Association, is excited to offer a new Alumnae Shadowing Opportunity.
The shadowing program provides any current Rosati-Kain student with the opportunity to shadow an alumna for one day. This program is available throughout the school year and select days during the summer. This allows students plenty of time to connect with an alumna and to find a date that works for both students and alumnae.
Note that the goal of the shadow program is for students to learn more about a career from an alumna already in the field. To get a sense of a “day in the life of … “. This is not a job interview and students will be responsible for their own travel the day of the shadowing opportunity.
If you are an R-K alumnae and would like to register to be a part of this shadowing program, please email Jen Shephard Guidic '87 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
