This chapter offers access to the Ross model by presenting its hallways and classrooms and sharing its evolution and philosophy of education. Instrumental to the accomplishment of the exportation and adaptation of the Ross model is the role of the Ross Institute Academy, which provides professional development training/workshops/coaching and multi-media resources to public and private educational institutions. Tracing the flagship school's development, from its birth to its role in the global expansion of Ross, the chapter illustrates what it aims to achieve and how its founder, Courtney Ross, has led the way in realizing an ambitious educational mission. The elaborate descriptions of Ross' theory and practice shed light on the impressive collaborative process through which the unique educational model was developed.
