Celebrating Generations of Shaker!
As we get ready to celebrate the 30th year of A Night for the Red & White, we’re telling the stories of families whose love for Shaker spans multiple generations – like the Jones family shown here, with 18 Shaker students since 1967! We invite you to share your family’s story with us at email@example.com – and save the date for a fantastic celebration on March 5, 2022, at the newly renovated Landerhaven!
What is A Night for the Red & White?
This gala benefit in support of the Shaker Schools was launched in 1992 by a group of pioneering parents looking for a way to provide for the “extras” that are essential to a Shaker education – such as fine arts programming, technology, innovation, and fitness.
Since that time, A Night for the Red & White has become a beloved community event, raising more than $3 million to support programming and resources that benefit Shaker students in every building. Last year’s event helped launch the Educational Equity Fund, dedicated to bolstering the District’s key diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.
We hope you’ll join us for this special event! (A virtual opportunity will be available for out-of-town supporters.)

Celebrating 25 Years of the MAC Sister Scholars Program
MAC Sister Scholars are invited to a Zoom reunion on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at 7 pm EST.
In 2022 we are celebrating 25 years of the MAC Sister Scholars program at the Shaker Schools! It is amazing to think about all the young girls and women who experienced a sisterhood among African American females that encouraged scholarship, achievement, leadership, and motivation.
Please RSVP by November 12, 2021.
Congratulations to the Class of 2021!
On June 2 we celebrated our newest Shaker Raider Alumni, the Class of 2021! We recognize the challenges that this special group encountered and we are grateful for the Shaker teachers, faculty, administrators, families, and friends that helped guide this group of incredible students.
We invite you to watch the ceremony and especially hope you enjoy remarks from our honored commencement speaker, Jamil Smith, Class of 1993. Jamil is introduced by another outstanding Shaker grad, Ayesha Bell Hardaway, Class of 1993.
Congratulations to our 2020 Shaker Schools Alumni Hall of Fame Inductees!
