SGP Historical Display


SGP, GH, & SG-GH Historical Display

Carolina Day School appreciates our history and all of our wonderful alumni. This January, we celebrated St. Genevieve-of-the-Pines (SGP), Gibbons Hall (GH), and St. Genevieve-Gibbons Hall by featuring them in an interactive, historical display in the Upper School library. Several students, staff members, past teachers, and alumni visited the display throughout the week. Students even participated in a "scavenger hunt" locating important facts and information about the school's history.

Happy 115th Anniversary to our SGP alumni!


"I loved my experience at St. Genevieve/Gibbons Hall, where my teachers were passionate and inspired a culture of enthusiastic learning. At Carolina Day, the teachers care deeply about each student and try to provide an environment where thinking, exploring, and creating are celebrated." Anne Imes SG/GH '82

Holiday Hoopla Basketball Game 2023


Congratulations to our alumni and staff basketball team for winning the 2023 Holiday Hoopla Basketball Game!

Several alumni showed up to join forces with some of our CDS staff members to take on varsity athletes in this year's Holiday Hoopla Basketball Game on December 16, 2023. This time honored tradition is an alumni favorite and after being Holiday "Hoop-Less" the past two years, our alumni came to play and took home the victory! The evening also included a Wildcat Burger Bar and an Alumni Holiday Happy Hour. Thanks to all of our alumni who participated and made the evening fun and festive!
