  • Ansin family members surround the Raider statue in 2018

    Help unlock the Ansin Challenge

    Former RE board chair Andrew L. Ansin ’81 and his family have extended an inspiring challenge to the RE community: Bring the campaign to $70 million of its $75 million goal, and the Ansin Foundation will donate $5 million to get to the finish line.

    With $66 million raised to date, the RE community is just $4 million away from unlocking the Ansin Foundation gift that would bring an exciting end to a momentous community effort – and, Ansin hopes, set the stage for the next round of reinvention at RE.

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 is fueling a wide-ranging revitalization that is transforming the upper school grounds and enhancing 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.
