Connecticut Private Day School Site Launch
The Long Ridge School is an independent, private institution on 14 wooded acres in Northern Stamford, Connecticut. Located just 15 minutes north of the Merritt Parkway, the school draws its PreK (from 2 years old) to grade five students from many local Connecticut and New York towns. The school prides itself on its diversity and its multi-age and multi-disciplinary study. Its mission is to keep instructional classes small to meet every child’s curriculum needs and instill a lifelong love of learning.
The school was not among the well-known private schools in the area. They needed a website that would “stake a claim in the market” as the private school in the “Fairchester” area, where integrity, creativity, and educating the whole child occurs. The clients wanted to show that driving to Stamford to tour the school is well worth the trip. Some of the “competitive” schools in New York and Connecticut do not commit to the diversity that Long Ridge School has — which is a definite benefit in attracting families of all backgrounds and family situations. The clients wanted a website that reflects this diversity and their mission to nurture and challenge the 100 students in their care.
3 Media Web met with representatives from admissions, development, marketing, IT, faculty, and the headmaster to examine the challenges and goals for the new website. 3 Media Web designed a site that uses dynamic on-site photography of the campus and students in action – both indoors and out. In these candid photos, the students are excited, engaged, and loving learning.
The content is crisp and speaks directly to parents who want a school whose values match their own … a forward-thinking school but not an alternative school that many perceive as a “university for children.” 3 Media Web used testimonials from parents of current students, students, and alumni to attest to their positive experiences at Long Ridge School.
