St. Katharine’s School, St. Katharine’s-St. Mark’s, and now Rivermont Collegiate – what a history! Rivermont has been developing intellect and inspiring creativity in Quad City area students since 1884! Rivermont invites all alumni to join us for food, friends, and fond memories on Saturday, August 13th. A casual gathering will be held at 2:00 p.m. on the Rivermont campus, located at 1821 Sunset Drive in Bettendorf. A tentative menu of “hometown” eats includes Happy Joe’s pizza and Whitey’s ice cream. Alumni are encouraged to bring spouses, partners, dates, children, siblings, and/or parents. This event is open to alumni and former students from ALL graduating years! Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to catch up with classmates and former teachers!
Our alumni come from St. Katharine’s School (affectionately known as St. Kit’s), St. Katharine’s-St. Mark’s School, and now Rivermont. The school was founded in 1884 and originally organized as St. Katharine’s School, an Episcopal boarding school for girls, located at 10th and Tremont Streets in Davenport. In 1968, St. Katharine’s dropped its boarding program, became co-educational, and added St. Mark’s to its name. In 1973, SKSM moved to its present location at 1821 Sunset Drive in Bettendorf, formerly the home of Joseph Bettendorf. In 1980, the school amicably broke ties with the Episcopal Church and in 2001 the name was changed to Rivermont Collegiate. Rivermont is the Quad Cities’ only private, independent, nonsectarian college prep school, serving preschool through 12th grade. Students at Rivermont are grounded in the basics, yet encouraged to think analytically and creatively, creating alumni who confidently and enthusiastically meet today’s opportunities and challenges.
