60 Years of Educational Excellence
We are embarking on an exciting year as Randolph School celebrates its 60th anniversary. As we reach this milestone, I'm reminded that our founders envisioned a school that would challenge young people to reach beyond their potential.
Today, we still honor our founders' vision and continue to develop new and innovative educational approaches that allow us to meet each child where they are in the learning process. We will always be forward-thinking to make sure that we are providing our students with educational experiences that not only prepare them for college, but more importantly, for life. Each day, I'm proud to work alongside educators that are passionate about demonstrating and instilling the values stated in our mission of Seeking Truth, Building Character and Nurturing All.
I'm delighted that you've taken the time to explore Randolph School through our website, but it's nothing compared to the experience in person. We would be honored to have you join us on campus for a tour and witness the joy and excitement of learning in action. I'd also like to extend an invitation to the many concerts, theatrical performances, festivals and athletic events that are open to the community throughout the year. I look forward to meeting you soon.
