This afternoon, the Ross Town Council voted unanimously to approve our amended Conditional Use Permit. This will enable Branson to begin a phased increase to the student body – 100 new students over the next four years – starting with a 25-student increase to the incoming Class of 2026.
This is a historic moment for Branson and one that we have been working toward for many years. Through the growth of our student body, we will secure a bright future at our Ross campus and create more opportunities for students who want to receive a Branson education.
We appreciate the time and energy the Town Council and Town Staff dedicated to creating a compromise that works for both Branson and the Town of Ross. In the end, we were able to partner with the Town to achieve common ground, and we look forward to our continued partnership as we grow the school responsibly and in ways that do not negatively impact our Ross neighbors.
We are truly grateful for the support and encouragement we have received from you, our Ross friends and neighbors, throughout this years-long process. We could not have done it without you.
This has been a long journey, and the unwavering advocacy of our Ross community is what has made this defining achievement possible.
