Groton School is a selective private Christian college-preparatory boarding school located in Groton, Massachusetts. Ranked as one of the top ten boarding schools in the United States, Groton is affiliated with the Episcopalian tradition. The school enrolls approximately 380 boys and girls from the eighth through twelfth grades. Groton counts many famous figures in business and government among its alumni, including U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. 

Stoltze was engaged to update their admissions suite with a fresh and adventurous approach. Instead of producing copious amounts of written information to absorb, we set out to tell Groton’s story primarily through the use of Tom Kates’ stunning photography set to a fluid and dynamic layout and typography. The visuals were punctuated with concise and compelling content written by the Thurston-Lightys. The landscape format lent itself to expansive crops of the picturesque campus and wide-angle views of their well-equipped classrooms and facilities. The approach enabled student stories and insights to become the real star of these publications.
