    We have been in the throes of the pandemic for a year, yet Ransom Everglades has continued to thrive and grow, and, as you will see in this issue, philanthropy is as strong — if not stronger — than ever.  
    I could not be more proud of all that our school has accomplished during this enormously challenging year. Our delivery of an outstanding education has continued uninterrupted. Not a day was missed. Thanks to the combination of excellent resources and sheer willpower, our students have been able to come to campus each day and continue with their learning. There have been challenges: social distancing, masking, revised co-curricular schedules, and very limited social activity, but our ambitious faculty and students distinguished themselves as pioneers of REmote RE. Alongside the triumphs, however, there have been excruciating losses, yet we are emerging from the pandemic stronger and more connected than ever.

Campaign at a Glance

REinventing Excellence is about equipping students with the skills and habits of mind needed to thrive in today’s ever-changing world. And to prepare them for their journeys, we are enhancing our curriculum, building our faculty, reimagining our use of technology, transforming our campus and expanding our impact in the community.

We approach these goals with an eye toward the future and a deep appreciation for our past. We believe that our enduring commitment to experiential learning and character development will serve our students well as they confront 21st century challenges. We are more confident than ever that RE graduates will continue to lead with purpose and put more into the world than they take from it.

As of December 31, 2020, we have raised $69.2 million, including $7.2 million in planned gifts.

    The generosity of our community

    Constance Fernandez P'22
    I agreed to chair the REinventing Excellence campaign nearly a year ago when my co-chair, Jeff Miller ’79, retired from the RE Board of Trustees. The world was rapidly changing, and we couldn’t imagine what was to come. Fast forward to 2021, and I cannot begin to summarize the events of the last year, but I do know that REinventing Excellence has succeeded in ways that have delighted and surprised us all. This community’s generosity has given me even more confidence in our incredible school. I am so grateful to each and every one of you who has donated to the campaign through your generous gifts, pledges, annual gifts and planned gifts – thank you!

Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The mission of Ransom Everglades School is to provide an educational environment in which the pursuit of honor, academic excellence and intellectual growth is complemented by concern for the physical, cultural and character development of each student. The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
