School Web Design Awards

Finalsite's design team is the most decorated in the industry.

We strive to be the best, year after year

We take great pride in our work and working with such great schools. With accolades from the AVA Digital, MarCom, Davey, Webby and Hermes Creative and various other awards, our sites have received international recognition for excellence. Here is just a partial list. 

vanguard university website in laptop

For Vanguard University, an enviable location on the California coast lends itself to some pretty impressive imagery, but this site is so much more than just beautiful photography. It's a modern, immersive website experience that guides its varied visitors down clear paths to information and conversion. Vanguard's website recently took home Gold — the highest award — in the Fall 2017 Davey Awards.

hotchkiss school website

The Hotchkiss School is a premier boarding school nestled in the humble town of Lakeville, CT. Their Best-in-Class website was awarded "Best School Website" in the 2018 IAC Awards.

VISIT SITE

awty international school website

Awty International School is Houston's premier international school with a rigorous IB curriculum. Awty International School's Best-in-Class website took home gold in the 2017 MarCom awards. The site features parallax scrolling, embedded video, a sticky navigation, use of Finalsite's Portals, a mega-navigation with call-to-action buttons — and dozens of other special treatments to "wow" their website visitors.

VISIT SITE

the community school website

The Community School was a 2018 Webby Award Honoree — one of the most prestigious and most difficult creative awards to win. Only a small percentage—less than 20%—of Webby entrants receive the acknowledgment of being named an Honoree in their category. The Community School's web design is as innovative and exciting as their adventure-filled curriculum. This is one site that is certainly worth exploring. 

VISIT SITE

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. Taft School's website was 10 years old and the team knew it was time for an overhaul as it didn't accurately portray a 'first glance' of everything that makes Taft special. 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.

VISIT SITE

Lenoir-Rhyne University

Lenior-Rhyne is a growing university in North Carolina and needed a website to showcase expanding programs. To get a true feel of campus life, our team did a two-day on-site visit to kick-off the design process, which led to this innovative, award-winning, Best-in-Class Design.

VISIT SITE

Punahou School

Finalsite's deployment team was able to deliver a groundbreaking website for the largest independent school in the country.
