Vanguard University

Visit Site

Vanguard University, with a mission to pursue knowledge, cultivate character, deepen faith, and equip each student for a spirit-empowered life of Christ-centered leadership and service, turned to Finalsite to revamp its website to reflect the richness and diversity of the student experience.  A fundamental goal of the design was to give users a path into each of the three divisions (undergraduate, graduate and professional studies), which provides a coherent aesthetic and navigational devices. A best-in-class design with a variety of interactive elements and special treatments propelled the University's online presence to something as unique as they are.

When someone first arrives on campus at Taft School, the beautiful collection of collegiate-Gothic buildings often will takes their breath away; Finalsite had a tall order to create a website that would do the same.  In addition to their picturesque campus, Taft wanted its website to spotlight their passionate faculty, bright students and close-knit community.  Finalsite helped Taft School transition from a 10-year-old website, working closely with the team to 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 received a 2017 Communicator of Distinction Award, one of the most prestigious web design awards in the industry.

The Global Indian International School (GIIS) is an international school group founded in 2002 in Singapore. GIIS now operates 23 schools in 7 countries throughout Asia and the Middle East. GIIS needed consistent messaging and branding across all the schools with clear navigation to guide users to the correct school. Finalsite created a new design that was able to highlight the key messaging of the group as well as enabling each school to communicate their information while maintaining consistent branding. Each scrolling homepage tells the story of each school and invokes an emotional response through the use of amazing photography and engaging content.

Visit Site

Choate Rosemary Hall, a top New England boarding school serving grades 9-12, has been a client of Finalsite's for over decade and has gone through several redesigns. In the latest iteration, Choate's goal was to launch a cutting-edge website that reflects their commitment to innovation and reinforces their desire to enroll students who are highly academic and motivated, independent and mature, yet collaborative by nature. Their site tells the story of a community where students are encouraged to take calculated risks, follow their passions, and become active community contributors with a global view and openness to understanding others. Live@Choate, a showcase for their social media, and other features, such as Choate by the Numbers, are one of many examples of how a school can leverage Finalsite software in a stunning design.
