REinventing Excellence: The Campaign for Ransom Everglades is the most ambitious in the school’s history. Co-chaired by Jeff Miller ’79, P ’15, ’21 and Constance Fernandez P ’22 , the $75 million campaign will fuel a wide-ranging revitalization that will transform the Upper School grounds and enhance virtually all of the school’s programs – while preserving more than a century of values.
At the heart of Ransom Everglades’ commitment to REinventing Excellence is thoughtful strategic planning. The initiatives Head of School Penny Townsend has crafted, since her arrival to RE in 2014, have provided the inspiration and foundation for this sweeping renewal.

As we look to the future we are enriching the curriculum, building the best faculty, integrating technology creatively, upgrading our facilities, and developing RE as an institution. These are the types of initiatives that propel Ransom Everglades from the ranks of an excellent independent day school to a nationally and internationally renowned leader in secondary school education.
