Program 1

The Ross Institute for Advanced Study and Innovation in Education has announced three major initiatives that will significantly expand the reach and impact of the innovative Ross educational model. This model was developed at Ross School of East Hampton, New York, an independent school founded 15 years ago by Courtney Sale Ross and her late husband Steven J. Ross, former Chairman and CEO of Time Warner. The initiatives include: * The establishment of the Ross Global Academy, a new public charter school approved by the New York State Board of Regents. In a landmark collaboration with New York University's Steinhart School of Education and New York City's Board of Education, the new school is scheduled to open in New York City's Lower East Side in fall 2006; * The approval in principle by Ross School Board and the Board of Morriss Center School in Long Island to consolidate; and * A substantial donation of land to Ross School by Courtney Sale Ross and the launch of a new capital campaign for needs-based financial aid for students.
