Support our Mission!

The Randolph School depends largely on tuition paid by our current families. With your support, we can remain strong.

A fundraising campaign for The Randolph School

Now is an important time to show that you value Randolph School and the innovative, progressive education we excel at. Teacher salaries and benefits are our single greatest expense at this time and our fundraising priority. 

Since 1963, the Randolph School has been a beacon of progressive education in the Hudson Valley. Our founders were parents and teachers, with a deep desire to reframe what childhood and education can look like. Drawing inspiration from earlier generations of progressive thinkers, Randolph has grown over time into its own unique manifestation of living and learning.

Today, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our teachers are creating new ways to engage with children. We know how fortunate we are to enter into this global crisis as a deeply connected community. Our shared values have always extended far beyond our classroom walls. Today, those values enable our children and teachers to innovate together, be curious about, and get creative with distance learning. 

The Randolph School is sustained by generous financial contributions from families, friends, neighbors, and alumni. We are committed to providing a rich, progressive, educational experience to as many families as possible. Tuition alone does not cover all our costs.

Now, more than ever, your support is essential.

About the Organization

A genuine philosophy of education is essentially a philosophy of life; living and learning are interdependent conditions.

Since human beings learn through exploration, interpretation of, and reaction to their world, then an appropriate educational approach encourages fearless exploration, challenge and exchange of ideas.

Children who are expected to participate in a democratic society must be educated in schools that allow the greater possible experience in making rational choices among a variety of alternatives, that also allow the widest possible experience in free interaction with others and in following their own lines of inquiry or investigation.

This will not be a silent school. A school where children are learning is a place full of the sound of laughter, of tears, of gaiety, of anger…the sound of children communicating…the sound of life…the sound of growing.
