REinventing Excellence


A blend of bold aspirations

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:
  • enriching the curriculum
  • building the best faculty
  • integrating technology creatively
  • upgrading buildings, facilities and spaces
  • developing RE as an institution

Our vision

No meaningful vision for Ransom Everglades could exist apart from our students and the faculty, coaches, counselors and staff who serve them.

The RE community has rallied around our vision because it is specific, aspirational and humane.

  • GROW. We will continue to evolve as individuals and as an institution.
  • LEARN. We will acquire and apply knowledge in areas ranging from academics, personal resiliency and sportsmanship to public service and environmental stewardship.
  • EXCEL. We will seek to achieve the highest standards as students, teachers, coaches, activists, philanthropists, volunteers and as an institution.
  • SERVE. We will forever send out graduates that put more into the world than they take out.
