Our Guiding North Star: Vision 20/20

At Allen-Stevenson we’re in the business of doing one thing: building boys who make the world a better place. For the past 135 years, we’ve done just that, and we aim to do so for another 135 more. 
That’s why we’re excited to roll out our 20/20 Vision Statement soon, a compilation of ideas, hopes, goals, and dreams, created by our Headmaster, along with our esteemed faculty and staff. 
Headmaster David Trower walked the entire faculty and staff through his vision at a meeting on Thursday, August 30. He said, “I believe we have a public and a private purpose. We should do everything we possibly can to prepare our boys for their future.” 
This Vision Statement will be the tiller that steers our school forward, for the next two years as well as for the foreseeable future. It focuses on values many veteran A-S families have grown to know and love about the School, and introduces new values we hope will help further our mission of building “intellectually, socially, and emotionally strong boys” while helping them to learn to make a difference and to make the world a better place.
Mr. Trower went on to explain that the Vision Statement is intended to suggest a certain urgency regarding initiatives being undertaken by the School. He strongly believes this Vision Statement is our way of steering our sail towards that end goal. He concluded the meeting by saying, “Even in this little school, we can make a big difference.” 
Faculty members spent the rest of the morning with their divisions discussing the Vision Statement and how it will serve as a guide as they develop learning experiences for the boys going forward.

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
