THE DATES ARE SET: April 28-29, 2023.

GDS has big plans to welcome you back.

See how campus has changed. Observe how teaching and education have evolved. Share it all with your family. And come to understand how you’ve grown since your time at GDS.

Whether it was 2 days or 20 years since your last time on campus, you know that a piece of your heart will always be here. You are part of our Bengal family, part of GDS's journey in leading quality education. Celebrate these memories at the biggest alumni event of the year: Alumni Weekend!

You and your fellow alumni are the VIPs on campus during your reunion.

Make plans to join one or more of the Alumni Weekend events by registering online before April 27, 2023.

  • Support GDS

    Your gift can impact any number of programs on the GDS campus.  Think back to your fondest memory of GDS: Was it the Backpacking Trip?  Was it participating in a play or musical?  Maybe it was winning a conference or state championship?  Senior Dress Up Day? Middle School trip to DC?  Whatever it was, without the support of alumni, these opportunities would not have been available!  

    Alumni are extremely important to the success of Greensboro Day School.  Without the support of generous alumni, GDS would not be able to offer the excellent programs that set itself apart from other educational institutions in the Triad area.  As an alumnus/a of GDS, you received the best education in the area that prepared you for what lay ahead.  Help us by giving back so that our current students can follow in your footsteps!  

Greensboro Day School develops the intellectual, ethical, and interpersonal foundations students need to become constructive contributors to the world.
