Donor Spotlight: Robbie Kozman

Robbie Kozman ‘26 has made the most of his York School experience since joining our community a decade ago as an eager and curious SK student.
As an avid student athlete, Robbie has proudly worn the Gladiator uniform for several teams, including soccer, basketball and badminton. He has also embraced leadership roles and public speaking opportunities through his efforts on student council, community action and the student ambassador program. Robbie also enjoys playing in the Honour Band and is excited for his upcoming trip to Havana with the Music Department, where he hopes to learn more about Cuban music and culture while improving his Spanish.

Robbie feels fortunate to attend a school that offers so many opportunities and experiences, and believes access to such a transformative education should be available to all. As one of the recipients of the Barbara Goodwin-Zeibots Scholarship for the 2021-22 school year, Robbie knew right away that he wanted to explore a way to give back to the school that he feels has given him so much. 

After brainstorming with his family and the school, Robbie decided to donate the financial award he received with his scholarship to the school’s bursary program. Bursaries allow students from all backgrounds to access educational opportunities that may not otherwise be open to them due to financial barriers. 

“Our school is enriched by a diverse student body through classroom discussions, friendships, and opportunities for learning,” says Robbie. The York School Bursary is critical in our efforts to build an inclusive community of learners. “Learning from doing is elevated when you’re learning alongside a diverse group of peers,” explains Robbie, “And that diversity is an essential part of a great education.”
