We are excited about all of the great work and progress that we have made on the Strategic Plan.
First, a big thank you to the many for participating in the numerous workshops, interviews, surveys, and well-attended community day that have been organized or distributed since we started the strategic planning process in January. More than 50% of our school community has contributed ideas thus far and we thank you for your input, feedback and time. Although we have made significant progress, there is more to do, and we look forward to continued involvement from our community.
All of the work that we have done together has resulted in a significant amount of quantitative data and qualitative information and feedback. With our external consulting partner, Leadership+Design
, our goal has been to run a comprehensive and best practices process that yields a result that is best suited for the future of our school and our boys in particular.
Over the summer, a working group, including our Headmaster, read through all of the information that we have gathered in our discovery process and analyzed it to identify key themes that appeared. Those themes were presented to our volunteer Strategic Planning Team that includes parents, teachers, administrators, alumni and trustees this past week. It has also been presented to our Board of Trustees. The initial themes include:
- Educating the Whole Boy
- Being Experts on Boys Education
- Professional Learning and Development for our Faculty and Administration
- An Engaged Community
- A Connected Campus
We are excited to explore these themes further and will continue to engage with the broader community over the coming months to create a vision, goals, objectives and initiatives together to support them. We welcome your input, so please keep a look out for additional invitations, events and surveys. In the meantime, if you have any questions, thoughts or ideas, please submit them through our Strategic Plan suggestion form
