Our 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 and Steven J. Ross, who recognized that preparing students to meet the challenges of an increasingly connected and rapidly changing world requires innovative models to transform education. Drawing on pedagogical research from leading education experts, the Ross Model incorporates a global perspective with integrated, hands-on learning and active problem solving.
Ross School is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) and Middle States Association Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA), and was awarded the first International Credential ever given by MSA. MSA has also recognized Ross as a Program of Distinction in Global Literacies.
