Taft School

When you first arrive on campus at Taft School, the beautiful collection of collegiate-Gothic buildings takes your breath away. In addition to their picturesque campus, Taft wanted to put a spotlight on their passionate faculty, bright students, and close-knit community.

Finalsite's deployment team created a beautiful interactive experience, equipped with two microsites for Athletics and Arts, social media feeds, and video marketing. The site recently received a 2017 Communicator of Distinction Award, one of the most prestigious web design awards in the industry.
