Mrs. Ross and her vision for Ross School attract many of the best scholars from around the world to embrace the challenge of designing a global, integrated curriculum that addresses the changing realities of the future. Over the last 20 years, Ross School has become a leading laboratory for educational excellence.
The Steven J. Ross Scholarship Fund, was established in 1991 at the School's inception by Mr. and Mrs. Ross, and ensures that all children have the opportunity to benefit from a Ross School education regardless of economic circumstances. The SJR Scholarship Fund granted financial assistance to over 35 percent of Ross School students during the 2012-13 academic year.
Located in East Hampton and Bridgehampton, New York, Ross School was founded in 1991 by
Courtney and Steven J. Ross. The college-preparatory school offers a complete and uniquely individual educational experience to students from pre-nursery through grade twelve. Since its founding, Ross School has prepared students to meet the challenges of the 21st century by combining best practices in K-12 education with the notion that leadership in the increasingly connected and rapidly changing world demands cultivating a global perspective and embracing technology.
