About Ross School
Ross School’s mission is to change the way education meets the future; to foster interdisciplinary, integrated thinking and innovative leadership; to engage fully in the global community; and to facilitate lifelong learning. Ross School was founded in 1991 by Courtney Ross and Steven J. Ross. They recognized that preparing students to meet the challenges of the 21st century requires new paradigms to transform education. Aided by the research of educational pioneers and leading thinkers, they expanded upon some of the best practices in K–12 education, combining them with the notion that leadership in an increasingly connected and rapidly changing world demands a global perspective and an openness to technology and innovation.

Beginning in grade 7, the school hosts a growing number of domestic and international boarding students on the Upper School campus. The nonprofit Ross Institute, founded by Courtney Sale Ross in 1996, promotes understanding of globalization’s implications for precollegiate education and develops and provides curriculum resources and mentoring to schools around the wor...ld interested in adopting the Ross model. Ross School operates as Ross Institute’s lab school. www.ross.org
