Ransom Everglades has special programs for gifted children. The educational institution takes part in various scientific and public projects, donates money to victims of natural disasters, and finances environmental projects.

Paul K. Ransom, a New York teacher and lawyer, opened Pine Knot Camp in 1896 as a boys' school in the Coconut Grove area. In 1902, he teamed up with the Adirondacks campus from New York to create the Adirondack-Florida School, the first migration boarding school. Ransom took an empirical-based training program. Students attended classes on campus in Florida in the winter and in New York in the fall and spring. The school suspended education during World War II. But it reopened in 1947.

In 1949, the Adirondack campus was closed, and the school continued to exist in Coconut Grove as a school for boys.

The Ransom Everglades School was founded in 1974 in Miami as a result of the merger of the Ransom School and the Everglades School (Everglades Girls School, opened in 1955. It was founded by Marie B. Swenson) into a single educational institution with a co-educational program. The school is still influenced and guided by the values of its founders. About 20% of Ransom Everglades private school students are foreigners or have a mother tongue other than English.
